hiya. new to this forum. thx for any help. my problem seems not to be so harmful, as it is annoying. everytime i go to any search engine and click on a result, i get redirected to another search engine i've never heard of. i've run spybot and ad-aware, but it hasn't helped. this forum will be my last resort before wiping out the HD, and reloading XP. attached is my logfile. thx, again

Welcome to the BleepingComputer HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum ksee
My name is Richie and i'll be helping you to fix your problems.

Please download FixWareout:

Save it to your desktop and run it.
Click Next,then Install,then make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts.
You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so.
Your system may take longer than usual to load,this is normal.

When your system reboots,follow the prompts.
Afterwards, HijackThis will launch,if it doesn't,launch it manually.
Please click Scan, and checkmark the following items:

O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{0A7E7BD2-6078-4033-BA4C-5BD547AC0FB3}: NameServer =,
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{B9F2F57E-C222-4AEF-B513-0320787D2340}: NameServer =,

O17 - HKLM\System\CS2\Services\Tcpip\..\{0A7E7BD2-6078-4033-BA4C-5BD547AC0FB3}: NameServer =,

Click 'Fix Checked'.
Close HijackThis,and click OK to proceed.
At the end of the fix you may need to restart your computer again.

Finally, please post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt,along with a new HijackThis log.
Let me know how your pc is running now.

Please Note:
Only do the following if you have connection problems after performing the above steps:
Go to Start>Control Panel,and choose 'Network Connections'.
Then right click on your default connection,usually 'Local Area Connection' or 'Dial-up Connection' if you are using Dial-up,then left click on 'Properties'.
Double-click on the 'Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)' item and select the radio button that says: 'Obtain DNS servers Automatically'.
Click OK twice,restart your computer.

Please post all replies directly into this topic,not as attachments,thanks.
