Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This. It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.

If you have the AOL 9.0 optimized version, go to Start, All Programs, America Online, and click Spyware Protection from AOL. If you don't have this or if doesn't work, you may need to upgrade your Adware or Spyware programs. If all this fails, you will have to edit your registry; go to Start, Run, type:regedit. Be careful about the registry keys that you edit. First make back up copies of these keys, and also set a system recovery restore point before working on your registry. Better yet let a professional do it.

I am suspicious of all the following files from the list of your high jack. Delete them one by one, but make up back up copies before you do so:

Note that the Google Toolbar itself is a spyware.
I think when I used the HiJack program last year, it had a backup feature, or it may allow you to unblock the files that you are about to block. In any case, make a System Restore Point in the System Restore before doing anything: Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.

Please download and run the following programs:

AD-AWARE

Go here: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/support/download/
and download Ad-Aware SE Personal

Install the program and launch it.

First, in the bottom right-hand corner of the main window click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

Then, in the main window: Click Start and under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Then, deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

To start the scan, click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it. (Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and then click Next)

Restart your computer.

SPYBOT SEARCH & DESTROY

http://majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

Open Spybot Search & Destroy (Click Start, Programs, Spybot S&D (Advanced Mode). Click online, Search for updates, Download all available updates. Close all Browser windows, Click ''Check for Problems''. Anything that needs to be fixed it will show in red and have a green check in the box to the left. Click ''Fix Selected Problems'', Then restart your computer.

Then, after rebooting, please post another log and we’ll see what’s left to get rid of.

Unfortunately, your Google Toolbar has some sophisticated programs running in your computer that are evading the HiJack program. See whether an updated version of Spybot or Adware (or even both of these working at the same time) can get rid of your problem. If all else fails, you will have to manually search your Registry (Start, Run, type: regedit, hit OK). And find the keys responsible for the MySearch and Google Toolbars, and delete them. Make back up copies of any key that you are deleting, and set a System Restore point before doing anything in your Registry. You should go to your registry only if you are a professional; otherwise, you are taking a chance.

Are you not able to remove these items from the ADD/REMOVE programs in your control panel? Check your ADD/REMOVE programs for any of the following and remove them:

'WebSearch Toolbar'
'WebSearch Tools'
'Search Assistant'
'Win-Tools Easy Installer'


If that doesn't work, you'll have to try to manually delete the registry keys associated with this program. Follow these steps:

Start the registry editor. This is done by clicking Start then Run.

Type regedit and click OK. (The registry editor will open.)

Delete the following registry keys if they exist:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{6A85D97D-665D-4825-8341-9501AD9F56A3}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\{6A85D97D-665D-4825-8341-9501AD9F56A3}

Exit the registry editor.

Restart your computer.

Start Microsoft Internet Explorer.

In Internet Explorer, click Tools -> Internet Options.

Click the Programs tab -> Reset Web Settings.





Rollin
