Default Random words hyperlinked

Hello - I believe I have a browser hijack. I had this problem once before and you were able to help me fix it. I have updated and run: CCleaner, AdAware, Spybot Search & Destroy, Microsoft AntiSpyware, CWShredder, Kill2Me. And still random words on certain sites, emails, that should NOT be hyperlinked, are hyperlinked.

I did not run Norton AntiVirus though - should I? Should I run it in safe mode?

My Hijack This log is attached.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Your log shows no signs of an infection or Hijacker.

If you are refering to words on a page that are underlined; then this is normal. Words that are underlined are ads, that are displayed by sites to generate revenue for the site.
