When I first noticed that typing any search entries into "google.com" would not bring me to my search results page, but rather, a page of links to "usspiral.com" and other dating services. My 404 page is now "flashlightsearch.com", which sent up a red flag. I decided to do my research and found out that my browser has been hijacked.

I have run Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D, but none of those have really helped so far. I downloaded HiJack This and scanned my system for the first time. What should I do next? Is there anything else I can do about browser hijacks?

OK. that one can be awkward. Try this way:-

Reboot into safe mode. (tap the F8 key as the computer boots, and select safe mode from the menu.)

Run Hijack This again, and fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {707E6F76-9FFB-4920-A976-EA101271BC25} - C:\Program Files\TV Media\TvmBho.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [xmlkey] C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\xmlkey.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunOnce: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [TV Media] C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

Then, WITHOUT rebooting search for and delete

files
C:\WINDOWS\Tasks\xmlkey.exe

folders
C:\Program Files\TV Media\Tvm.exe

These may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

Please post a followup Hijack this log, and say if your problems persist.
