After almost a month of battling against a very annoying Hijacker - I was finally able to remove it today thanks to your site. I was able to read enough posts with similar problems to finally prevent my homepage from being hijacked. My computer was infected with the res:// hijacker. The aboutBuster combined with HijackThis and some file removal in safe mode seemed to do the trick. I reset all Web Settings to IE Defaults. I am now able to login to webbased email, but still come across a few sites that I can't access. For example, when I type http://www.spywareinfo.com into the address bar the "Cannot Find Server" page loads and the address in the browser is changed to "http:///?%20www.spywareinfo.com" Are there any more steps I need to take to finalize the cleansing of my system? Here is my HijackThis Log just in case you need it.

Thank You Again for your site, I will be contributing very soon. I appreciate any further help anyone can offer.
