I've followed PGPhantom's advice of updating Ad-aware as of 6/29/04 and re-running in full scan mode. For the first time in several weeks, I know seem to have control of my own chosen home page and no "Only the Best" pop-ups. Hooray, Applause, Thank You, Thank You.
I stand in awe at the spirit of co-operation and teamwork evidenced by this forum and its volunteers. This res://<random>.dll/>random>.html#<random> hijack has been the single most frustrating computer-related event I've ever experienced and I'm extraordinarily grateful to this forum for leading me to a resolution. I make the assumption that the team at Ad-aware incorporated a fix that benefited either partially or in full from the investigative work done here. Thanks again and please keep up the good work.

Thanks, to the admin's 4 accepting a newbie & to Phantom, 4 counting the ways.

To reinforce this statement, I can attest that I ran Ad-aware (with all the latest updates and per the configuration instructions here) on June 30, 2004 and it did not remove this malware variant. Sigh.
res://<random>.dll/<random>.html#<random> - e.g. res://yzrgm.dll/index.html#96676
As of June 28th, 2004 - Ad-Aware still leaves the service intact - You will still need to post your log to get this variant removed
I'm being patient and not bumping my post.
Pssst. The thread is here.

Remove everything, for everything Ad Aware detects is spyware/malware reg hacks or whatever.
So am I to remove evrything in the log or just what the adware program highlights to remove?
Ad aware has saved my life. ;D
