    I heard that google wasn't a very good search engine, I heard something on the news about it containing viruses and such. I removed the google toolbar from my browser. I installed yahoo toolbar and knew I would like it more since it has a spyware scan included. I scanned my computer for spyware and it pulled up a lot more than my ad-ware program did. Well, I deleted the spyware from my computer. Well, a couple of months ago I deleted a spyware called Sahagent. When I did, I could not log on to the internet. I had absolutely no connection whatsoever. In order for me to log on to the internet, I had to restore it. Then, my connection was fine. Well, Saturday night, I ran the scan that the yahoo toolbar has and accidently deleted the sahagent, and once again, I had no internet connection. My messengers wouldn't couldn't. The computers would show on task bar but was only recieving 24 bytes per second. So, I didn't have a way to restore it. The next morning, I called the tech support. He helped me the best he could. I checked my registry and everything seemed fine. Still had no connection. He couldn't tell me what the problem could be. After I got off the phone with him, I went to find and searched for sahagent files, I found them. I deleted them then rebooted. I logged on and it was fine. Ran a lot better since I went into MS Dos mode and did a registry scan and clicked restored.

    But then, I ran another scan and more spyware came up and I deleted it. And then once, again, had no internet connection. And sahagent was already completely off my computer so I knew it wasn't because of it. So, once again I went back into MS DOS mode and did what he told me, restored.. then I was able to log on to the internet again. I ran another scan and the same stuff came up but I didn't delete it because I knew I would have no internet connection.

    So, I am asking... what could it be that is making my connection dead? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    Nonsense, Google is a respected engine/toolbar and is by far the best, for now.

    AS to the rest your and infected with scumware and need to post a HiJack log.

    Hello kj_slid . Welcome to the TSG.

    You need to update your version of HijackThis. Open HJT> Config> Misc Tools> Check for update online. If that doesn't work, download it from my signature. Remove the hijackThis.exe you have now.

    Post a new HijackThis log.

    Okay, I done as you said. When I went into Safe mode, I went to add/remove programs to delete what you said. I didn't see any of them. I went to find on start bar to look for them and didn't see them. So, I am guessing they are no longer present. Also, when I rebooted... the error message didn't come up. Here is a new hijack this log.....

    Restart your computer.

    Press the F8 key until the startup menu appears.

    Choose the Safe Mode option then press Enter.


    Double-click the My Computer icon on the Windows desktop.
    Click the View menu, and then click Options or Folder Options.
    Click the View tab.
    Do one of the following:
    Windows 95. Select "Show all files."
    Windows 98. In the Advanced settings box, under the "Hidden files" folder, select Show all files.
    Click Apply, and then click OK.

    I suggest you do this:

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"
