this a copy of email i sent to merijn,but i want an answer faster than he may be able to provide,since i deleted a dll file
i had a problem with some kind of hijack
some search page took over as my start page even though i had it set to blank and switched it back to blank with spywareguard
on a few search engines that i tried , the browser was hijacked and taken to porn pages instead of the results i clicked
i could not get it fixed until i deleted a file called "jbalda.dll"
i went through so many attempts to fix the problem that i am not sure if i discovered the file using hijackthis or another program
i may have seen the filename when spywareguard told me about home,search,bho changes
mcafee did not find a problem,spybot did not find a problem,deletion of "prefs.js" did not fix the problem,nor did uninstall and reinstall of ie5.5 fix the problem
spybot did detect a BHO and said it removed it,but the hijack kept happening
after i deleted "jbalda.dll",it did not show up on the hijackthis scan
what do you know about "jbalda.dll"?
i still have it in recycle bin if you want to examine it
i just went back and read your june 1 update and that looks like the problem i had
