Posted 18 June 2009 - 05:43 PM

I have installed and run the latest versions of each of the following anti-virus / anti-spyware applications in safe mode and normal mode multiple times, based on instructions and feedback from various sites:

AVG 8.5 Free Edition
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
SUPERAntispyware
Ad-Aware Anniversary Edition
Spybot Search & Destroy
Spyware Doctor
Rooter Rootkit Detector

For the past 10-15 scans now, all of the applications above complete their full scans without reporting any infections. However, my search results are still getting hijacked. It appears to be happening in both IE6 and Firefox 5.0 for both Google and Yahoo search results. Everything else appears to be working normally. I am running Windows XP Pro SP3.

I hope I have followed the correct steps for this forum and provided the required information. Below is my most current HijackThis log. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. I'm not sure what else to do (besides reformatting my hard drive and starting over).
