According to a quick google search I find.

Brdr it's caused by a an adware called think-adz or zeno, you can see that on the msconfig, startup items. the file is mndsnrg.exe and its located in windows/system32. delete it in safe mode then restart. after that my suggestion is to use registry mechanic to delete registry entries.^_^

I will pass on the issue of using Registry Mechanic. I do not advocate the use of them whatsoever. But there is your lead on brdr. Run all the malware scans that are suggested here in the security forums in safe mode and see if that helps. If not then I suggest you post a HJT Log.

Thanks a million. It figures that it is just one more problem related to the darn adware I cant get rid of., That *&$#! zeno crap is annoying the heck outta me. I need to figure out how to get rid of that altogether, I have tried stopzilla, which seems to remove it. But then it comes back.

Thanks again for the lead. Now I at least know what Im trying to fix.

The most effective way to run your scans is in safe mode.
