    I have recently installed a browswer thing from clear-search.com and igetnet.com and I really didn't like it, so I uninstalled it using their uninstaller. Then I ran ad-aware and deleted everything it pulled up. Now when I try to search from the address bar it just tries to bring up a web page.

    So if I seach for
    I need help

    it just brings up http://search i need help/

    Please help, its annoying not being able to search from the address bar.

    Thanks!

    You can check and fix these items then:

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Skype] "C:\Program Files\Skype\Phone\Skype.exe" /nosplash /minimized
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Yahoo! Pager] C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\ypager.exe -quiet

    This won't resolve the address bar search though. A possible quick fix for that might be to go to Internet Options > Programs, and click "reset web settings"

    If you want to customize this, you should be able to do it by selecting the Search bar tab in IE (at the top), then "Customize Settings" (in the left pane), then "Autosearch settings" (tab at the bottom of the "customize settings" window)

    Actually, I did the 1st and the 4th one and the skype and yahoo. Then I ran HijackThis again, that added some new ones to the top that I saw were related. So I fixed those also. Then restarted my computer and BAM, all fixed! Thanks, HijackThis is the SHIZNIT!
