<_< My system is contaminated by zestyfind. I was having problems with allaboutsearching, but was able to clear it up with hijackthis. My hijackthis log was clean on last check, but I still haven't been able to remove this pest! Please help!
(F.Y.I, I've removed the entry:

R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = www.zestyfind.com/

several times, but it keeps coming back.) This is my latest hijackthis log:
