You can remove ALL old "links" by going to Tools --> Options --> Content tab --> click on Auto Complete --> click on Clear Forms
If you just want to remove that single entry, we will have to modify the registry. Let me know if that is what you want to do.

Please download and run hijackthis Do a scan and then save a log. Take the log and ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post. In order to attach it, you will either need to change the .log extension to .txt, or you will have to put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.
We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.
I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.
If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodals and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty.

Now as for getting rid of that entry, we have to modify the registry.
The steps that I am about to suggest involve modifying the registry. Modfying the registry can be dangerous so we will make a backup of the registry first.
Modification of the registry can be EXTREMELY dangerous if you do not know exactly what you are doing so follow the steps that are listed below EXACTLY. if you cannot preform some of these steps or if you have ANY questions please ask BEFORE proceeding.
Backing Up Your Registry
- Go Here and download ERUNT
(ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) is a free program that allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.)
- Install ERUNT by following the prompts
(use the default install settings but say no to the portion that asks you to add ERUNT to the start-up folder, if you like you can enable this option later)
- Start ERUNT
(either by double clicking on the desktop icon or choosing to start the program at the end of the setup)
- Choose a location for the backup
(the default location is C:\WINDOWS\ERDNT which is acceptable).
- Make sure that at least the first two check boxes are ticked
- Press OK
- Press YES to create the folder.
Go to Start --> Run and type regedit
Press enter and then the registry editor will open. If you see more than 5 folders in the left window, you may need to click on some "-" signs to collapse the sub-folder trees. Once you see the 5 main folders, such as in the picture below, then we'll begin.
Now use the folders in the left window to navigate to the following location:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER --> Software --> Microsoft --> Internet Explorer --> TypedURLs
Now in the window to the right, scroll around until you find that website's entry. When you find it, double-click on it and change the value to something you would rather it be, such as http://www.google.com. Once you change it, click on OK and then exit out of the Registry Editor.
Let me know if you are successful.

you got urlsearch hook with no file bho with no file

Open the Registry Editor and scroll to the very top. Click on My Computer to highlight it. Now press CTRL + F
In the search bar, type (or copy and paste) www3.fetishhits.com/movie/pts/?t1/
Have it do a search for it. When it finds it, if it finds it, take a screenshot of it and post that. That way I can see where it is at, and what the best course of action would be.

Before we go and start fixing things in HJT, lemme get in touch with a malware expert so he can properly fix it.

the malware expert will determine how clean the computer is
computerwiz will make sure it will be fixed

There are certain things that no scanner will ever catch, but HJT can. So I'm waiting for a response from a Malware Expert about his HJT log. Since there is a bad entry.
