Hello

I have a rather strange problem!

NOTE:
****************************************************
I have posted this in the browser section but would like to see if anything comes from here too!
***************************************************

About two weeks ago I had a bad virus on my pc. I had porn popups left right and center. When I closed one page it opened two more etc. I managed to get rid of all of it using spybot!

Everthing is fine now except for one thing.

Any search engine I use (yahoo, google etc) does not work.

I can access the page but if I type some search criteria in and press enter I get a blank "page cannot be displayed".
I know this had something to do with that virus!

I have tried all sorts......downloads from symantec, adaware, spybot.........


Any ideas how I can get my serach engines working pleasE?
I bet its some dodgey key in the registry!

Thanks
