After running AdAware SE Personal and SpyBot Search & Destroy, I looked in your forum, and found someone with a similar problem with AZESearch. I followed the instructions you gave to him, but I am on a different operating system (XP Pro) and it did not work, because of this reason I think.

I also have a problem with search engines, which arrived at the same time as AZESearch did... Whenever I go to www.google.com, and do a search, it only comes back with about 5 replies, and they are all [bleep] sites, which makes me think that whatever is on my system is controlling the sites I visit too, only through MY computer, not the server...

Here is the HijackThis log:

Yes, in that case, have HijackTHis fix it.

Do me a favor and upload:
C:\Program Files\Spyware Cleaner\SpywareCleaner.Exe or even the entire

C:\Program Files\Spyware Cleaner\ folder (if it's not too big)
at the Uploads forum here:
http://www.thespykil...x.php?board=1.0
Follow the instructions there.

This is very unusual... I don't know what it means but maybe you have an answer... I opened Windows Explorer and searched for the C:\Program Files\Spyware Cleaner\ folder, and lo-and-behold it wasn't there :tazz: . I don't know why this would be, I did another HiJackThis scan and the same line of SpywareCleaner.Exe came up, but the folder simply was not there. After an entire system search of SpywareCleaner.Exe with 'Search Results' in the Start Menu, I still could not find anything... what should I do?

Thanks

See HERE for how to show hidden files.
If it still doesn't turn up it has probably been removed by previous scans. Fix the entry in HijackThis since it is only an orphaned one then anyway.

I did this, and all traces of AZEsearch now appear to be gone! Also my Google is working perfectly, thankyou very much for your support. Here is the final log:

Also would you mind telling me if I have any unneccesary processes running that are slowing down my computer? It could do with a little bit of a speed-up... Thankyou!

The advice below is meant to root out unnecessary startups, so advice can be taken "lightly"
If you recognize something you need to have handy all the time skip it.
Should you regeret anything, Backups can be restored in HijackThis under Config > Backup


Check the following items in HijackThis.
Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [NeroFilterCheck] C:\WINDOWS\system32\NeroCheck.exe

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SunJavaUpdateSched] C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_02\bin\jusched.exe

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE

Reboot when done.

Please do have a look at my site about removing and preventing spyware.
