Help! I've been hammered by the AZESEARCH nightmare. I've used Spybot and AdWare, but still it persists. I downloaded "Hijack This" but don't feel comfortable freely unleashing it. I hope you can help. I appreciate anything you can do.

Below is my Logfile:

Pieter,

Thank you for responding. I appreciate your help.

After running HijackThis and checking & fixing the items you defined, I rebooted safe and deleted msxct.exe.

The azesearch toolbar is no longer present, but any google search I do within IE produces similar results as before. Every search is directed to the same series of search engines, and nothing relating to the specific subject of the search.

I've attached my HijackThis Log File:

In HijackThis click Config > Misc Tools > Hosts File Manager.

Use it to remove the lines that start with 213.219.251

Those are the ones falsifying your Google results.

The rest of the log looks good. :tazz:

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