    I'm sorry for posting something that has already been posted, but after following the advice of a previous post, I still have problem.

    Searchv keeps overtaking my browser after I reboot. I downloaded CWShredder and ran that, then Hijackthis. Here's the log immediately after I ran CWShredder:
