    My daughter let something install on her computer that she shouldn't have while browsing and now numerous things are not working right.

    One is the Windows Search tool. You click on it and absolutely nothing happens.

    Any ideas out there??

    Thanks in advance. I'll check back in a couple hours. :)

    Solved!

    $teve suggested removing the following two lines using HiJackThis:

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {2BC43670-C0BD-4794-BB11-F60F3E001DC5} - c:\progra~1\ddm\0\ddmp.dll

    I did as he suggested and everything is working fine again.

    Great group!
