    Each time I search on yahoo.com, I get a popup showing the same links. Also, the results page includes the links in the top portion of the page!

    I have run hijack this and deleted all items! I have run ad-aware and deleted all items there. NO LUCK.

    When I view the source code on the popup, I see the source is:
    cassandra.searchassistant.net

    I count myself as a techie but I am totally stumped.

    Thanks in advance!

    Post the HJT log so we can see what's going on.

    Close all windows, including this and any other browser windows. Launch HJT and click the Scan button. When the scan is finished, the Scan button will have changed to Save Log. Click that and save the log to your HJT folder. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING YET. Most of the listed items are harmless or even essential. Wait for recommendations from someone trained in HJT log file interpretation.

    In the saved log file window... In the toolbar at the top of the window under Edit, select Select All. Copy (Ctrl+C) the text and paste (Ctrl+V) it into a reply in this thread.
