So, I'm pretty computer savy having been a former network admin. I have a spyware that I can't seem to find any info about. I've spent about three hours trying to get rid of this thing and no dice, so I've come in here asking for some help.

It first appeared as addzz.exe, if that's any help. I have long since rid myself of that, but wasn't able to find any info on it through google.

I speek compugeek fluantly, so no need to treat me as a user ;) .

My HJT log...hope someone can help me out.

Good job!
Yu didn't perform the onlinescan as I asked you to deal with the leftovers.

Check and fix next lefttover:

R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing

It could be possible that this hijacker deleted some files, so check if the following are still present:

°Control.exe: Is in your C:\WINDOWS\system32. Download here when missing.

°Hosts: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC .Download here when missing.
Unzip hoster to an own folder, eg C:\Hoster
Start Hoster.exe, click 'Restore Original Hosts' and click OK. Close the program.

°Shell.dll: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 Download here when missing

°SDHelper.dll:
If you are using Spybot Search & Destroy, this hijacker can also delete SDHelper.dll.
Download SDHelper.dll.
Place the file in the Spybot Search & Destroy-folder. Most probably, this ist C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy

How are things running now?
