I followed another user's progress getting rid of this same thing but I need to know if I should take all the same routes he did.


This is what I've done so far:


When I type something such as the word whatever into the search bar instead of using a search engine like google I get this: http://us.yhs4.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=visicom&hsimp=yhs-lavasoft&type=vmn__adawaretb__3_0__ya__ch__yr&p=whatever


I want only google chrome results. I had installed adaware on my own computer and have had no problems at all. This is my dads computer and he is not computer savvy I don't know how this happened.


So far I have:


deleted adaware

done -AdwCleaner-

run combofix

Now I am not sure I should run :Run CFScript: because I'm not sure if we have the same problem


I appreciate any help you can offer cause nothing I've done so far is getting rid of it.


Thank you!
