It runs fine. But, on Mozilla Firefox where the url goes, normally I would be able to type in weather without having to do the url, and it would go to weather.com, but now if I do that it goes to an ISearch search results page. That is the only problem that I notice.

Well, I tried to get it by typing in weather, but this time it brought me to:

There seems to have been a slight problem with the database. Please try again by pressing the refresh button in your browser.

Database error in Link-ID == false, connect failed
mysql error: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'hop2db' (61)
mysql error number: 2003
Date: Sunday 27th of March 2005 12:21:10 AM
Script: /?q=weather
Referer:

Then after that I tried again, and it actually brought me to weather.com. Then I tried again, and I got the same notice. I'll keep on trying to see if I can get the url, and will post back.

At the bottom of mozilla it says Waiting for www.isearch.com, so maybe thats all you need. I tried about 10 times, and it still gives me the notice from the last post.

Download install and run ccleaner in safe mode (tap f8 on reboot and choose safe mode from the list)

http://www.ccleaner.com/ccdownload.asp

Then reboot to normal windows and try again.

Ok, I did all that you instructed. I typed in weather in the url place on mozilla, and I still get that notice, and at the bottom of the page it still says Waiting for www.isearch.com.

This is weird. You dont have any infected files left on your machine.

Yet you are still getting the ISearch crap. What about completely uninstalling firefox and deleting its folders. Then reinstalling it. You can back up your bookmarks before doing it so as not to lose them.
