    My browser has been hijacked and is redirected to the "Search for.." Homepage.

    The Hijack is still there after I ran updated versions of:
    Buster
    Ad-aware
    SpyBot
    CWShredder
    CCleaner
    McAfee Stinger
    AVG Anti-Virus

    Does anyone have advice on getting rid of this?

    Below is my HiJackThis log.....

    Hi.......1st make sure CWShredder,Adaware and Spybot are fully updated.

    Reboot into safe mode by following instructions here: http://helpdesk.its.bethel.edu/resnet/Documents/Antivirus/Safemode.html
    then as some of the files or folders you need to delete may be hidden do this:
    Open Windows Explorer & Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and untick "hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"
    ================================================
    Run hijackthis again and put a checkmark against these entries....double check
    in case you miss anything....
    .....then,close all browser and outlook windows including this one and "fix checked"

    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [romahere2] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\HFUNE1CE698S4.EXE
    O15 - Trusted Zone: *.greg-search.com


    Locate and remove:
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\HFUNE1CE698S4.EXE
    ==============================
    Empty the Recycle Bin.

    Open internet Explorer Click on "Tools">"Internet Options">And delete temp internet files.
    And clean out your %Userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp
    folder. [It's a good idea to do that regularly.]
    ==============================
    Go to Internet Options>Programs
    Click the "Reset Web Settings" Button to reset your prefered home and search pages.
    ==============================
    Run all three of the programs you updated and have them fix anything found.
    ==============================
    Turn off System Restore:

    On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
    Click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.
    Restart your computer and post another HijackThis log.

    Later.....when you are sure you are clean turn it back on and create a restore point.

    ;)
