    either me or my wife d/led something that's installed something that's making a popup window for panicsearch.com to show up at windows startup-it starts as panicsearch.com then morphs into a a pharmaceutical website,a porn website or a fast cash website

    i've done everything i can think of to get rid of it (Hijackthis,cwshredder,ran three registry cleaners,ran spybot & adaware and continually run spywareblaster,gone into safe mode to try to find it) but it keeps showing up and after spending all day Saturday repairing and reformatting a friend's pc i really don't wanna spend all afternoon reformatting mine so if anyone has any suggestions please pass them along
