    When logging on, I keep getting this message. Can some help get rid of this?

    Suggest you post a HiJackThis log so we can see what's starting up.

    Download hijackthis here:

    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    Double-click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HiJackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
    Put a check next to 'Create a desktop icon' and click 'Next' again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialogue box click 'Finish' and it will launch HijackThis.

    Click on the 'Do a system scan and save a log file' button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click 'Save' to save the log file. The log will open in Notepad.
    Click Edit => Select All => Edit => Copy.
    Paste the log in your next post.

    Yes, definitely copy-and-paste a HijackThis log here.


    Go into Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel and look for entries such as:



    Search Assistant - My Way

    If they're there, uninstall them.

    Next, go into the C:\Program Files folder and see if any leftover folders in those names are still there. If they are, delete them.
