    Hi everyone! If your browser has been hijacked, before you post, please read this...

    I'm posting this because some people post their HijackThis logs without first using the already available, free tools to clean up their system. There are a lot of great tools out there to help get rid of what's hijacked you. The most popular and most commonly used are:

    AdAware

    and

    Spybot Search & Destroy

    Please download and run these both - they are the most essential.

    Another one that comes into common usage is CoolWebShredder, if CoolWebSearch has taken over.

    The final recommendation I have before posting your HijackThis log is to run a full virus scan with the latest definitions. The most commonly used online virus scan is probably Housecall, although there are many others - see the links to some of them in my sig.

    Thank you!
