Hey,

I have been having severe trouble getting rid of the http://greatsearch.biz/ hijack. I have followed a number of different removal processes online and it always comes back. I have run AdAware, SpyKiller, Spybot, cwshredder, and Hijack this. I have deleted the dl.exe, dlm.exe, etc files in safe mode, removed the registry keys associated with this, and still to no avail. Can someone offer me a bit of help on this. Here is the logfile from hijack this....

Thanks!
