I have tried everything I know to get rid of this hijacker that is continually giving me messenger alerts to go to a bogus registry cleaner website. NoAdware found them, but won't remove them. Running Navlog1 now.

Super Antispyware should remove or at least help us identify the malware that is causing the problem.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

NoAdaware is a program that was previously listed as a rogue product on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware Products List because of concerns with False positive and the use of aggressive, deceptive advertising including exploitation of the name "Ad-Aware". It has since been delisted but in my opinion it is not a very effective program compared to others with a proven track those mentioned in BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources or one of the other Trustworthy Anti-Spyware Products.
