Hi there. I have run updated S&D, Ad-Aware, and AVG scans and it can't seem to locate this homepage hijacker. I have spywareguard installed and it keeps alerting me that my homepage is trying to switch to "yoursearcher.com/index."

In my hijack this log, I have deleted both entries of yoursearcher.com, yet they always re-appear. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Hi there,

Please do this first;

You are running hijackthis from your desktop, this is not a good idea because when we do a fix hijackthis will create backups and they will be spread all over your desktop. Can you please create a folder in My Documents and call it Hijack (or something similar) like this C:\HJT\HijackThis.exe. Then extract hijackthis into the folder you have created and run it from there. When you have done that, delete the copy of hijackthis that you have on your desktop.

Also, this must be done before you post again

Update HijackThis to version 1.98
run HijackThis
select config> misc tools and select "update online". then yes.
Run a scan and post a new Hijackthis log after you are done.
