On one of my computers, after running the hijackthis scan, i pick up a website leading me to a .dll by the name of sidesearch. Is there any known problems? I looked at the list of websites/bhos/toolbars that one of the guides for hijackthis provided. It wasn't found on any of the lists. Thanks.

BTW, i also wanted to thank you guys so much, you guys were the first hit for me on google when i searched for "can't get rid of popups" lol i read guides on hijackthis and was able to fix my sister's computer. Thanks you guys! :D

SideSearch is from Lycos and spyware. Maybe you could post your HijackThis log in the MalWare Removal forum, experts will see if you're clean or not.

You are very welcome...

But if you go to Google and you type "SideSearch", you'll see all the sites listed above ;)
