I had a browser hijack by search-for-you.com but i think i solved the problem.
I thought i'd succesfully removed but after rebooting the problem returned. I ran adware and hijack this several times but no luck.
Look in the windows system directory for a file called ntldr.exe. The windows startup section also refers to this file.
If you don't delete this section in the windows startup the problem will return. It's not a running rocess in the background. Each time you startup your internet options willl be changed to my-search-for-you.com. Therefore hijack this and adware won't find the problem.
The problem wil be solved by running msinfo32. Go to the startup configuration section. In the window with overview of autoexec, config.sys, system.ini, win.ini and startup programs go to startup programs. Uncheck the marker at :\windows\system\ntldr.exe.
Second delete the ntldr.exe file in your windows\system
Run Hijack This and fix all the referring items
This should do the trick.
Good luck and please let me know about the results!
