Hi, I am relatively new to the world of PCs however am quickly learning!!
My PC runs with Windows ME.
I read your article on searching for possible hijackers - after running a search I have found I have HKey in my register - however after looking in the 2 control panel folders and many sub folders could not locate - inetcpl.cpl - that I need to delete.

I am not confidate enough to delete anything without a guiding hand as my first pc was crashed by a trojan, I did not know existed until too late

Also too I use Australian Yahoo - I managed (Ithink) to get rid of Yahoo Companion but now when I start up Yahoo I am getting a toolbar for Mysearchnow.com and my address bar at the top says - MySearchNow.compassthroughIndex/Yahoo.com - once a yahoo sign in page comes up (not my homepage I had set) I also get popups.

I run Adaware 6.0 version several times a night now and also go into the Cookie folder and delete stuff from there too (except a Index file - which I cannot delete as it tells me its a Source File and is in use) unsure what that means either!

Sorry to be a pain in the butt - however I read your info site - the best i have found! and would appreciate anybodys ideas or suggestions.

With Thanks in advance,
ShadowLady
