    Once again, I've gone somewhere and ended up with annoying adware on my machine. I ran Spybot and HijackThis but neither one seems to detect Zesty Find. I already changed my homepage back but if I go to a site with a DNS error of any kind, I end up on a Zesty Find page instead of being able to reload the page I want.

    According to what I read on the McAfee site, it comes bundled with YahooStocks (another program I seem to end up with and have NEVER tried to download).

    Here's the other info I found: http://hq.mcafeeasap.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=100536

    here's my log - any help from the pros here is appreciated:

    Fix with HijackThis:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [YahooStock] C:\WINDOWS\ystck32.exe

    Terminate ystck32.exe in Task Manager and delete C:\WINDOWS\ystck32.exe file.

    This has been happening to me all day. It started as something called wabu. Then it called itself Active-X (not the real one) and I uninstalled that. Then it turned into Zesty Find. I deleted the Yahoo Stock thing, but will this finally do the trick or what? I can't even receive my e-mail notifications or windows updates anymore! Help please!:(
