    There seems to be something, whenever I search though a search engine, no matter if its msn, dogpile, google, yahoo. The first page is always ads unrelated to teh search, while the second page is a little better, still holds results that I would not normally get. I am running xp home edition sp2, i run hjt, adaware, and spybot quite often but without success to solving the problem. Any suggestions?

    [​IMG] Download HijackThis 1.99.1

    [​IMG] Unzip the hijackthis.exe file to a folder you create named C:\Program Files\HJT

    [​IMG] Do NOT run Hijack This from the Desktop, a temp folder, or a sub-folder of C:\Documents and Settings, or choose to run it directly from the ZIP file as your backups will not be safely stored.

    [​IMG]Before running HijackThis: You must close each of the following:your web browser, e-mail client, instant messenger, and programs like notepad, wordpad, MS Word etc. And any other unnecessary running programs.

    [​IMG]Run HijackThis and save your log file.

    [​IMG] Post your log as an ATTACHMENT to your next post. (Do NOT copy/paste the log into your post as it will be removed).
