I recently downloaded a screensaver and shortly after my Internet Explorer had a new toolbar. QuickSearch I believe it is. I read over the post for Newbies and ran SpyBot and no immediate threats were found. I downloaded HijackThis and have a copy of the logfile below. I hope I haven't done anything wrong with my post. Can Someone please help me clean up my computer? It is lagging seriously.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Fresh_69, and welcome to SpywareInfo!

Can you create a new folder for HijackThis please .... it's not a good idea to run it directly from the Desktop as it creates backups when fixing things. Create a new folder called C:\HJT or whatever you feel comfortable with.

When you have done that, run HijackThis with all other applications closed. Click Scan and place a check against the following items:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Local Page =
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {5D60FF48-95BE-4956-B4C6-6BB168A70310} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {82315A18-6CFB-44a7-BDFD-90E36537C252} - C:\Program Files\QuickSearch\QuickSearchBar1_27.dll
O3 - Toolbar: QuickSearch Search Bar - {82315A18-6CFB-44a7-BDFD-90E36537C252} - C:\Program Files\QuickSearch\QuickSearchBar1_27.dll
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://*.windowsupdate.com


That last one (Trusted Zone) is a recommended fix rather than a mandatory one: it would let Windowsupdate do anything and everything it likes to your system without permission if left alone. I'd have HijackThis fix it, but it's your call on that one.

Click on Fix Checked, exit HijackThis, and REBOOT YOUR SYSTEM.

Post back a fresh log afterwards and we'll see if that's got it!

Hi Fresh_69,

That looks much better! Has the problem gone away now?
