I returned from Iraq to find that somehow, my computer had an Isearch toolbar. My internet/computer was acting funny, I cannot got to websites like www.grisoft.com, etc. on the infected computer but my other one I can with no problem. After reserch I founf that Isearch is some kind of spyware and/or trojan. The little wifey says she has no idea how it got on my computer but now I can't seem to get it off. I searched google and used an Isearch uninstaller but it did not work, cause I still can't go to certain websites. I installed and ran HijackThis and now I am posting my results. Can anyone help me clean my computer so I don't have to reformat.... :mad:

Thanks alot for your help, that seemed to fix it. I already use Spybot and Ad-Aware but they did not seem to pick it up. Thanks again, this was such a relief. By the way, I found your website from google. (y)

also download this file to your desktop and rename it to isearchfix.reg
double click it and say yes to the prompts to merge with the registry
it will restore the missing/damaged toolbar entries that removing this pest causes
