It has been down for several days. You can get it off of alternate sites, such as www.majorgeeks.com or www.cnet.com

I have the scan results open ready to check and fix, but the dll file in the R1 results have a different name (uiznp.dll) than the one you told me to remove (uymaq.dll)

That's okay, just substitute those entries.

Also the spywareinfo.com site w/ sdhelper and control.exe is down. It will not load, so I can't download them.

That's strange, they've been working for me. I'll change the links and host them on our server. It's not a critical step. Yuo don't have Win98, and Spybot can always be reinstalled. <_<

So far so good. Looks like it did the trick.
Thanks so much for your time and consideration.
I have learned so much.

Congratulations! Your system is CLEAN <_<

How do you prevent spyware from being installed again? We strongly recommend installing SpywareBlaster (it's free for personal use).

Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.
Consumes no system resources.

Download, run, check for updates, download updates, select all, protect against checked. All done. Check for updates every couple of weeks. If you have any errors running the program like a missing file see the link at the bottom of the javacool page.

It's also very important to keep your system up to date to avoid unnecessary security risks. Click Here to make sure that you have the latest patches for Windows.

These next two steps are optional, but will provide the greatest protection.
1. Use ANY browser besides Internet Explorer, almost every exploit is crafted to take advantage of an IE weakness. We usually recommend Firefox.
2. Install Sun's Java. It's much more secure than Microsoft's Java Virtual Machine .

It's okay to delete the Hijack This folder if everything is working okay.

After doing all these, your system will be thoroughly protected from future threats. :D
