I ran kill2me to remove zestyfind, but zestyfind came back. When I ran Kill2me again, it said there were no signs of infection, but I ran it anyway. My new homepage is about:blank, I've seen this before. Maybe this is the prob? <_<

It's a rather new spyware infection. We can help you get rid of it. <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it 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.

Here's my hijackthis log, but I've already worked hard with it to eliminate allablutsearching. I actually fixed several problems this morning that it found, but I don't know what files to delete in safe mode. I'll copy the log here, but maybe I should wait a day for the offending parties to show themselves again? I am also getting a microsoft update page as my homepage occassionally. I'm not sure if this is a problem, too.

Download this zip:

Please unzip it to the desktop. It will not work if you run it from inside the zip. After unzipped go to the desktop. Open the pv folder. Double click on the runme.bat

A dos window will open. Please select option 1 for explorer dll's by typing 1 and then pressing enter.

Notepad will open with a log in it. Please copy and paste the log into this post. <_<
