    Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).
    Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.

    i hate to be a broken record, but there are much superior browsing solutions out there .... tabs are yummy. However, fixing IE, may or may not be worth your time.

    There is definitely some viral activity in your log. For instance, this entry put there by the W32.ogid virus:

    O4 - Startup: DC++.lnk = C:\Program Files\DC++\DCPlusPlus.exe

    Don't do anything until an expert can analyse the log for you and advise. I'm sure there's other stuff. I will request that this thread be moved over to the Security forum.

    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusearch.html?p=ZSzeb029 can go

    i think this can also go, however, get this checked in security:

    Is there an internet explorer setting that does that? Its sounding less like spyware/adware, and more like either a bad registry/program setting.
