Supposely, below should be the results(link titles only) that I got from Google if I searched "Farsi" (reproduced by Firefox since it's not hijacked :) )

-----------Before brower hijacked---------------

FarsiNet - Iranian Persian Global eCommunity for Farsi Speaking ...
Farsi, the most widely spoken Persian Language, a Farsi Dictionary ...

However, if I use either Google Toolbar for IE or just go to Google and search "Farsi"
I got the same result as above. but 1-2 seconds later, the results were reordered as follow.

-----------After brower hijacked-------------------

American Singles - Dating Persian or Farsi Speaking WomenFind female Persian or ....

Pimsleur Approach Language Lessons - Learn FarsiOrder the language course on CD or cassette that teaches you to speak Farsi in 10 days with accurate pronunciation, guaranteed. Used by the FBI, CIA, and NSA....

FarsiNet - Iranian Persian Global eCommunity for Farsi Speaking ...FarsiNet - ...


American signle was moved to the top result!!!

I ran Spybot S&D and HijackThis to fix a few, but I haven't solved this Google result hijack problem. the following is my HJT log:

I followed the HJT log tutorial to fix a few items, but the problem still exist. Am using Firefox to get away those irrelavant result coming to the top.

Thank you very much.

I think I might solve the problem. read this http://securityrespo...n.adwaheck.html

I ran Norton Antivirus today and remove this trojan virus. and I tried Google again, my results were not hijacked under IE.

I reasoned that my other browsers don't give me this headache is they might not support VBScript.
