Any help is appreciated. When I do a google or yahoo search, the search result discriptions are correct, but the links are advertisements. I've seen several posts with similar problems but haven't been able to resolve the issue. I've ran Nortan Antivirus and Spybot. I'm on a Dell, Windows XP, running both IE and Firefox. In one fix attempt, I renamed c:/Program Files/MyWaySA, hence the "no name" entry related to that directory in the following log. Attached is the hijackthis log.

After reading a few more posts, I tried Malwarebytes, and it seemed to resolve this problem. Unless someone feels that there is still potentially a problem somehow, I'll consider this resolved. Thanks for the help.
