    i don't really know where to start and hope that i've posted in the right forum(i didn't want to make multiple posts)

    when i click on "search" on my browser, i just get a general MSN page... i am no longer able to "customize" it( i hope someone knows what i'm talking about) i can still highlight "customize" , but it just opens up the same general search page from msn. i'm not sure but i must have deleted something a while ago when my browser was hijacked and my searches were no longer being done by msn... while now they are, but i can't customize them anymore(there used to be a whole bunch of options to choose from, not anymore)

    hopefull someone can help me out with this problem because it is driving me crazy...even though it is not really a big deal, i just want to know where it went and how to get it back.

    not sure if you'll need this, but here is a copy of HJT log. it must be missing something that i deleted a while ago(feel free to see my previous post concerning hijacked homepage and highjacked search page)... let me know if you'll need anything else...also, please let me know if there is anything that i don't need and can SAFELY delete.
