Posted 11 June 2009 - 02:12 PM

I need help getting rid of whatever it is that is re-directing my Google searches. I tried running SuperAntiSpyware, and it got hung up and "locked" at a Windows System 32 file called "oobe/connect.js" I'm running Windows XP Pro, and have downloaded and run Hijack This. My log file is pasted below. Any help that you can offer will be greatly appreciated! --Paul
