    I have been using Ad-Aware, but have other problems with my system, including now being hijacked by ClearSearch. My 19 year old has also been surfing casino sites, so I have a bunch of junk from them, too. I have enclosed a HijackThis log and would really appreciate some help on what I should delete. Thanks!

    In Hijack This, check ALL of the following items. Double check so as to be sure not to miss a single one.
    Next, close all browser Windows, and have HT fix all checked.

    Next reboot into Safe Mode and remove the following files and folders that are bolded

    C:\WINDOWS\WINSHOW.DLL

    C:\ Program Files\AVEO\ATTUNE\bin\attune_ce.exe
    C:\Program Files\Acceleration Software\Stopsign\webcbrowse.dll

    C:\ Program Files\Clearsearch\IE_CLRSCH.DLL
    C:\Program Files \ezula\eZulaMain.exe
    C:\Program Files\ISTsvc\istsvc.exe

    C:\ Program Files \Common Files\Eacceleration\download.exe

    See here http://service1.symantec.com/SUPPORT/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2001052409420406 for how to start in safe mode if you don't know how.

    Reboot into normal mode


    Now download Spybot - Search & Destroy (if you haven't got the program installed already)

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

    Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove/fix all it finds that are in RED

    Reboot

    Last, run HJT again and post your log again to see if anything was missed.

    Thanks
