Hi, I'm new here but I really need some help. I somehow acquired the Home Search Assistent, Search Extender, Shopping Wizard terribleness. I have Ad-Aware, Spybot, Symantec anti-virus, and by recommendation the new Microsoft Antispy beta version (which is actually really good). Nothing seems to help. As I have tried to do some research on this hijacker a bit I know it is more controlling on internet explorer and I now have Mozilla firefox which is controlling the hijacker a bit better (but I still would like it off my computer). I also downloaded something that was supposed to fix it; and it did, in safe mode, but once I restarted it came back. I also recently noticed that I have ALOT of .exe programs on my computer but I have no idea what they're doing. I'm really not very computer savy. I really hope someone can help, and sorry this is so long. Thanks in advance. My hijackthis file is below.
