Well i noticed searchforfree has taken over your browser ;)

anyways , i saw more people with that problem and just suggested to download Microsoft AntiSpyware , there is an option on the program to edit your Internet explorer settings , just edit the start and search pages and you will be fine with that :tazz: if that didn't work come back and reply again with a new hijackthis log .. greetings ..

No go. I ran Microsoft Antispyware. It found no spyware. I did go to advanced options and reset my browser start page to msn and search to msn, and I set it to block any attempt to change the resets. When I rebooted and started IE, Antispyware notified me that it was blocking attempts to change the start page, but searchforfree still showed up. Here's my new Hijack This log:

I've tried those, but they only restore my browser until the next reboot. From my research, there appears to be other files that need to be deleted, e.g. htmlsync.exe, isystem.exe, ldriver.exe, and possibly peo.dll. However, before I do that, I need someone with more expertise to identify which files I can safely delete that may be associated with searchforfree. Thanks for your ideas.

That seems to have worked. I may also have an about:blank problem that's being blocked by Microsoft AntiSpyware. Here's the new Hijack This log:

Your log is clean :tazz:

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
To protect yourself further:
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
I also suggest that you delete any files from "temp", "tmp" folders. In Internet Explorer, click on "Tools" => "Internet Options" => "Delete Files" and select the box that says "Delete All Offline Content" and click on "OK" twice. Also, empty the recycle bin by right clicking on it and selecting "Empty Recycle Bin". These steps should be done on a regular basis.
