    I had a similar problem that was posted on the forum with the yahoo, ask, and lycos search engine not being able to search. I read the post and I used the hijackthis program and I will post the log information. Please help if some things need to be fixed. How do I find the hosts folder?

    run hijackthis, tick all below, doublecheck to make sure you haven't missed any, close all browser windows & press fix checked

    ALL the O1 entries
    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: Domain = mydomain.com
    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer = 69.57.146.14,69.57.147.175

    then reboot

    then download all the security patches shown on this link to prevent re-infection

    I'm using windows 98 second edition. The problem with using the web and not being able to search, just came to an end.
    It is all in the host file.
    The name might come up as HOSTS.SAM

    Find the file on the system, delete and reboot. All your search engines should work freely.
    Thanx for the help everyone.
