THANKS!!!!!! goes out to thatman and death_hand. Death_Hand for making the thread for the searchmiracle s***. And ThatMan for the helpful how-to, it was a bit confusing and tedious, but after printing, highlighting, and reading over and over. I got SEARCHMIRACLE off my back!!!! HOORAY!!!!! I used the combination of About:blaster, CleanUp!, CWShredder, Ad-Aware, Microsoft Antispyware, to get at this fuggin adware/malware that was killing me. I used Ad-Aware and Spyhunter at first, but the combo didn't get it all. After adding the others to my arsenal, I hammered it out. After running all of the tools in SAFE MODE without networking, the problems vanished. i am so pleased with the results, I took the rest of the day off to celebrate. I have been playing this "chessgame" for a week and it was p*****g me OFF!!!! Geekstogo.com is a very valuable resource I will use more often. thanks for the user friendly environment, other similar sites give me headaches...cause of all the text they use...info is all scattered too. I give this site a 10 for ease. thanks!!
