I have recently had problems with yoursearcher.com setting itself as our homepage. I have been reading around and it seems to be a big problem. Up to this point I have run Ad-ware (I use it regularly, great program), I have all critical updates for Win2000, I used Norton AV, and I have tried running Hijackthis and delelted some of the yoursearcher junk but I am missing something. I tried running the registry scan that what posted on this site and nothing is working. I have followed your recommended steps but I believe I still am missing something to get this annoying thing to go away.

Please let me know what I can do thanks!

Here's the Hijackthis log:

Hi devonsmith. Welcome to GTG. Sorry you got overlooked. Are you still having problems?

reboot into safe mode and make sure all files are showing.

C:\winnt\jnupirt.exe
C\WINNT\system32\?hkdsk.exe
c:\winnt\ufhbdpo.exe

C:\Program Files\VVSN\VVSN.exe


Run Hijack This making sure you're not connected to the internet. Put a check mark in these entries. After you're done, run adaware and clean out your temp. files ....reboot and post a new log.

It appears that it didn't work. I went through step by step but this nasty little creature does not want to go away. Please let me know what the next step is.

Thanks!
