Hello. I have read the FAQ. I think I have a new variant of a browser hijacker. My HijackThis log is listed below. I was first alerted by Ad-Aware, but I cannot find this culprit. I have also tried to update my CWShredder, but I think both the main download site and the sister site are blocked by this "demon". I have looked through my HijackThis logfile, but I have not recognized any variants previously mentioned. The description that Ad-aware gave was "Possible attempt to control/redirect the browser. This object referrs to a 'blacklisted' site." If you need more info from my Adaware, I will be happy to give it.

Another symptom I have been seeing is, when typing a post on a certain message forum that I frequent, my typing is slowed significantly. This is what alerted me to check my antispywares, as I had other variants of CWS before.

Thank you for your help and time. My HijackThis log is below.

Tick and fix this:

R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,SearchAssistant = http://searchbar.linksummary.com/

That's the only bad thing I see. However you need to get the current version of HijackThis (1.98)

http://www.spywarein.../HijackThis.exe
If that link isn't working, extract from http://www.downloads.../hijackthis.zip
Peferably put it in its own permanent folder, such as c:\HijackThis\ and run it from there.

Fix the entry noted above, then reboot and post a 1.98 log.

Ok, I did as you requested. Thank you for your help. :D I also downloaded the latest update to the cwshredder via an uninfected computer and a disk, lol! I got around the block... HAHA on CWS this time! LOL! The shredder did eliminate a couple of things, but not the R1-HKLM.... that you specified.

Here is my latest log with the new HijackThis version:
