I started getting a new search toolbar that was obviously spyware and a new icon on my desktop. AdAware got rid of it. But after reboot, when I do a Yahoo search and click on a result link, it takes me to a new set of results in Lycos. The same search results, only Lycos's version. I've tried AdAwre, CWSHREDDER, Trend, Search&Destroy, and even ToolbarCop. I've been deleting files for over a week, but they and similar ones come back.
My system is getting slower, and now I am getting redirecting to all kinds of sites, not just Lycos.
here is my Hijack This file. Thanks!!

I am no expert, but not quite a novice either, so if there is more info I can provide, please let me know.
