    I can not get either Windows Explorer 8 or latest version of Chrome to do any searches from the toolbar. I can go to web pages that are in Favorites or by various other routes. I have run several Malware programs and done a DNS flush but the same problem persists. Any ideas.

    Tried the Hijack this removal tool. After scan it came up with a number of lines that I could check and analyze or fix. I clicked on one for analyze and got a reply of no internet connection. The computer is still online. Hijack this also came up with - write access to host files denied. When I ran Run C:\WINDOWSs\System32\etc\hosts it only came up with examples and no lines with Hijack this in it to delete.
    Still stuck.
