I am getting redirected every time I perform a search on Yahoo. I get rerouted to other search engines or pages that have nothing to do with my search item. Also, my computer is continually trying to install Wordperfect Office 12 (which came with the computer). No matter what, I get three install attempts that I cancel, then a few minutes pass and the installation attempts start again. I don't know what it is that I've installed that started this, or how to get rid of it.

The log from hijackthis is included here. I included both that I have, I don't know which you can read.

Please help!

Thanks,
Jen

Hello gretchenwolfrum,

Welcome to the BleepingComputer Forums.

Since it has been a few days, please post a new HijackThis log.
Please do not attach your log, as that makes it hard to read.

Thank you for your patience.
