    PLEASE HELP! I need to get this off my computer and can't!!!! I had it before and you helped me remove it, but CWShredder isn't even picking anything up! It is only affecting the default page in IE, but not Netscape~!

    Does anyone know what 180ResearchAssistant is?

    THANKS SO MUCH.

    I believe that is spyware

    Create a permanent folder, either on the hard drive or in My Documents and download Hijack This: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html

    Close out any open web browsers

    After it downloads, run a scan, save the log file it creates
    Then copy and paste the log back into this thread

    Do not attempt to fix anything yet :)
