    Hello dsljohn! :D

    Download DelDomains from here:
    http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/DelDomains.inf

    After downloading the file, Right-Click and select "Install". This will get rid of the O15 entry in HijackThis.

    Download SpywareBlaster from here:
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=2859&file=11&evp=61b0e8ad41924a03c37615f4682b4cef

    Install and run SpywareBlaster. Click on "Updates" and then choose "Check for updates". Next choose "Protection" and at the top you will see different tabs which are Internet Explorer, Restricted sites and Mozilla/Firefox. Choose one of them at a time and at the bottom click "Protect Against Checked Items" (make sure that all of the items are checked). Tick the boxes above the items. Make sure you do this for all of the top tabs. Mozilla/Firefox you only need to do if you have the user profiles on your computer. You may now exit out of SpywareBlaster.

    Download Spybot S&D from here:
    http://users.skynet.be/fa936042/spybotsd13.exe

    Install and run Spybot S&D. Choose "Search for updates". Next choose "Download updates". After that, choose "Search and Destroy" and click on "Check for problems". If Spybot finds any nasties on your computer, make sure that they are ticked and choose "Fix selected problems".

    Download CWShredder from here:
    http://cwshredder.net/bin/CWSInstall.exe

    Install and run CWShredder. Click on "Check for Update" and download the latest updates. Next, click on "Fix". Exit out of CWShredder.

    Open Internet Explorer and at the top click on "Tools" and choose "Internet Options". Click on the "Advanced" tab and untick "Enable third-party browser extensions". Click on "Apply" then "OK".

    Restart the computer.

    You are running an older version of HijackThis, please download the latest version from here:
    http://www.click-now.net/cgi-bin/download.pl?file=0965

    Run HijackThis and choose "Do a system scan and save log file".

    Post the HijackThis log on this thread.

    Run HijackThis and fix the following entry:

    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

    Close and run HijackThis again to make sure that the entry is gone.

    Restart your computer. Run HijackThis to see if the entry is gone. If it is, then your good to go. (y)

    If it's not, then post the HijackThis log back on this thread.
