For about a year now I have had a blue "search" toolbar on my explorer that I can't get rid of no matter what I do including using ad-aware and spybot (except stopping 3rd party browser extensions in my internet options). This toolbar's name in my toolbar list is WaveMix, but it has a habitat of switching names with other toolbars. It also shows up automatically on my browser without me checking it, often replacing any other third party toolbar I have up. When I do enter a search term in the bar it takes me to a useless search page http://srch.lop.com/search/search.cgi?affid=72&src=searchbar2&s=search%phrase%here. What is this bar? How did I get it? And above all, how can I get rid of it!?!

i think you have a the lop parasite

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.

You have a few spyware items in your log.

Make sure your are using teh latest versions of Adaware(6.181) and Spybot (1.2), then you MUST update each one using the update feature in each program or else they will be ineffective. Fix all problems they find.

In your log fix these:

I don't know what these are:

This is the toolbar I orginally wrote about. It is now gone as well as the other files that you mentioned. My IE now works like it should, but please do not hesitate to write if you see any other spy/adware in the list above. Thanks!

you've then still got a trace of that spyware/parasite... as i dont know what in that list is needed, im not gonna comment on what should be deleted.. but those 2 lines that Triple6 pointed out look rather suspicious! there is definately something lurking.. try running CWShredder, it may eliminate the problem...
