Hi There, I have been struggling with spyware for some time now. I get redirected searches which is frustrating. I use Spybot everyday and it always finds something. My Norton always reveals spyware I cannot delete. I have tried to delete through the registry with limited success. This morning I downloaded hijackthis but am unsure about what to do with the results. Here is my log. Thanks!!!!!

[EDIT]Just noticed you already used Spybot S&D[/EDIT]

So, download Ad-Aware at lavasoft.usa.com
After installing AAW, and before running the program, update by using the Globe icon.
Shut down and restart Ad-Aware.
Now press "Scan Now", "Select drives\folders to scan" and select the active partition (usually C: ), then 'next', and let Ad-Aware scan your drives.
It will find a number of "bad" files and registry keys. Click 'Next' again.
Rightclick in that pane and choose "select all" and click 'next'.
It will ask you whether you'd like to remove all checked items. Click OK.
Finally, close Ad-Aware, and reboot.

Regards,

Pieter
