I need help getting rid of vroomsearch and problems related to it. It has apparently taken over my computer to some degree. I have followed all your steps regarding Ad-aware, CWShredder, Spybot, AVG, Trend Housecall and Windows Update SP1.

Vroom is continually making itself my home page and default search page. Along with that I randomally get ads/websites popping with anything from pharmaceuticals, dating services, p*** sites and computer sales.

After following all your steps my computer found a few things and eliminated them and I still have the problems. I run a current version of Norton Internet security with firewall on and pop-up/ad blocking.

Please help me!!! I have attached the HighjackThis Log.
