Hi all,

My problem is that IE has been taken over by some [bleep] Dialer, funny thing is everytime i open IE it goes to "http://103.nowfind.b...ch.php?q=WORD".
Where WORD is it is just a random word each time. (Usually quite explicit) and on every occasion it comes up with "No Results"
Basically been hijacked by a broken Search engine. Even when i type it a website address and hit 'Enter' it goes back and search's for a random WORD and has 'No Results'.

Luckily i have FireFox, but as i got a new computer and giving this to sister i need to remove this Spyware, apart from that i've reinstalled everything and have the computer running nicely.

I've tried quite a few different Spyware removes, i've deleted these registry things but still have this problem.

Please download CleanUp! - Download - HomePage
Install and run. Click on the button labeled CleanUp!.

When it finishes it will prompt you to restart Windows - there will be one or two files it cannot delete when Windows is running - however, they will be deleted next time Windows starts up.

Reboot and post a new log. ;)
