    Hello, tongiht while using IE6 some of my search engines no longer work. I can goto a web site like yahoo and then click on autos and it works fine, but if I type autos in the search enigne it does not work. Same thing happens if I goto Google.

    http://www.yahoo.com/r/sx/*-http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=auto&ei=UTF-8&fr=fp-top

    That is what I end up with when I search autos on yahoo. I beleive the /r/sx/* is the problem. Do I have a worm or something? I am completely lost in all this kind of stuff. All other web sites work fine, only seems to affect search engines.

    Thx for the help.
    Eric

    Run an online antivirus check from at least one of the following sites
    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/

    download AdAware 6 181
    Before you scan with AdAware, check for updates of the reference file by using the "webupdate".

    Then ........

    Make sure the following settings are made and on -------"ON=GREEN"
    From main window :Click "Start" then " Activate in-depth scan"

    then......

    click "Use custom scanning options>Customize" and have these options on: "Scan within archives" ,"Scan active processes","Scan registry", "Deep scan registry" ,"Scan my IE Favorites for banned URL" and "Scan my host-files"

    then.........

    go to settings(the gear on top of AdAware)>Tweak>Scanning engine and tick "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then........"Cleaning engine" and tick "Automaticly try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot"

    then...... click "proceed" to save your settings.

    Now to scan it´s just to click the "Scan" button.

    When scan is finished, mark everything for removal and get rid of it.

    then
    Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

    After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
    Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds that is marked in RED.


    then post a new hijackthis log to check what is left
