    I have a problem with search engine websites. For the past 3 years, I could always access Yahoo and Lycos. But, about 3 days ago, I noticed that I could not get Lycos (time out error), and for Yahoo, I can get their page, but when I submit a search criteria, the operation times out. Also, in Yahoo, when I click on the "advanced" search options and/or the "preferences" search options, I get the time out screen (which seems ridiculous). I am able to click on other links in yahoo, like mail, personals, shopping, etc. I have windows XP, on a pentium 4 system, Dell, using microsoft internet explorer 6. I have noticed that when I surf for lycos, in the task window at the bottom of the screen, it says something about starting a java applet. About a week ago, I re-installed/installed Java, because I could not play some games on the MSN gaming website (text twist). It was something to do with the virtual machine? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Hi stampfel, and welcome to TSG.. :)

    The first thing to do would be to download 'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
    When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

    This will give us a rundown of what’s going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Don’t fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

    Cheers

    Liam

    After running Hijack, and deleting the files you specified, I ran Ad-Aware, and deleted about 80 more files. Here is the log after I ran Hijack again:
