Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and post your log as a new topic in the Hijack This forum. It will get a better response there from the people most qualified to analyze logs.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

:tazz: Dear helpneeder,
I found the next solution:
first select seek: subject azesearch
then delete all files but azesearch2.ocx (this one is self reproducing cannot be deleted)
then startup your pc in dos with your startup diskette from win98 (This always works with every operatingsystem)
when the cursor is at a:\
type C: ,enter
type windows ,enter
type system32 ,enter
type del azesea~1.ocx ,enter
now your pc is free of this problem, ;)
start up normally without diskette
clean your carbagecan
;) and change in the configurationscreen, internetoptions the address azesearch to what ever you want
Good luck
