I have this, too. I can't make out heads or tails of what all I just read in this thread, but I have a trojan identified by AVG Anit-virus that's affected my explor.exe and can't be removed. I have something that keeps popping up a search bar connected to www.amazingautosearch.com. Can somebody give a lay-person some plain english help to get rid of this problem? I have used spybot S&D and ad-aware to no avail. Thanks for helping out.

Hi tangstamp, welcome to Geeks to Go: <_<

I've split your post into it's own topic. It helps prevent confusion with the original poster of the other thread.

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.
