    during the last few days, when i try to search from the address bar, I am directed to 'perfectnav' that says 'the site you entered can not be found. I have located and removed perfectnav files from computer, it still doesn't work. i tried resetting internet defaults, still nothing.
    Help!! even when i try to use the MSN search button on my toolbar, a blank window opens with no search options. ack!

    Download Adaware Se from http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
    In Ad-aware click the Gear to go to the Settings area.
    The following items should be on a green check, not on a red X.
    Under the Scanning button:Scan within archives
    Under Memory & Registry, Check EVERYTHING
    In Check Drives & Folders, make sure all of your hard drives are selected
    Under the Advanced button, Check
    Move deleted files to recycle bin
    Include additional object information
    Include negligible object information
    Include environment information
    Under the defaults button Set the homepage you wish to have set as default.
    Under the tweak button
    Some of these may not be an available option, depending on your version of Ad-aware and your version of Windows. Do not be concerned if you cannot select a certain item.

    In Scanning Engine:Unload recognized processes during scanning
    Include info about ignored objects in logfile, if detected in scan
    Include basic Ad-aware settings in logfile
    Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile
    Include used command line parameters in logfile
    In Cleaning Engine: XP/2000: Allow unloading explorer to unload shell extensions prior to deletion
    Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
    UNCHECK: Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion
    Click Proceed to save these settings. When you would like to perform a "Full Scan," switch the scan mode from SmartScan to Custom
    _______________________________________________________________
    Create a folder on your hard drive somewhere like in "My Documents" and name it Hijackthis
    Download 'Hijack This to its own folder http://www.dotcomsecurity.org/downloads/HijackThis.exe
    Doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents here. [​IMG]

    Most of what it lists
    will be harmless or even essential, don't fix anything yet.
