I have read several posts here (including the READ FIRST post) trying to fix this home page hijack, and havn't been able to. I have updated Adaware and Spybot S&D and ran both several times. Adaware finds 4-6 cookies, but that's obviously not the problem.

I downloaded Rubber_Ducky's AboutBuster but I guess that wasn't my problem. I restarted in Safe Mode and ran it and it still didn't work. (There were no errors.)

Here is my HijackThis log:

Alright, I did a little more research on this and the searches are being sent to "thebestsearch.net" which is basically BS when you visit the site. I found a guide, www.geekgirls.com/net_hijacked.htm, and went through the steps of editing my registry and everything. However, this hasn't helped. The home page is still always reset by this hijack/trojan.

Any ideas? :scratchhead:
