Hello. I would appreciate someone helping with this. I seem to have aquired a browser hijack somehow. I'm most commonly directed to redzip, and upspiral sites. I have downloaded hijack this, and following is the log that was created. I'm also running spybot, spysweeper, adaware, and avg. Spysweeper seems to detect popupsearch, and deletes the entry...but it simply reappears.



Thanks, Tom :tazz:

Hi. Thanks for the quick reply. I tried everything suggested (although I couldn't find the winlogin file) and rebooted, and have used other programs such as cleanup and cwshredder, but the problem just keeps coming back. :tazz:

Here is the latest logfile.

Thanks, Tom
