Oops! I posted this earlier in the incorrect subforum, if someone could delete that thread (found here) I would apprieciate it. :thumbup2:

Recently I've contracted the MyWebSearchService bug (mwssvc.exe) and since have found myself in a bind. Every time I click a link in google a new tab appears (FF) redirecting to some godforsaken site. Steam also cannot run (I could honestly ignore the web redirection and live with it if not for this problem ;\ ) and crashes constantly (details here). I've tried Avast! 4, fixwareout, AVG, etc to correct the problem, none seem to do the job. Below is my HiJackThis log. Note the "O2 - BHO" files are appear new, probably from Avast! or another friendly program. I will dutifully await responses/guidance, but one thing I must mention: I will not update windows past SP1, so please take that into account when you post any help you might offer. Thanks!


EDIT: Another note: Internet Explorer seems to be a part of the bug, its constantly open when I check my running tasks yet its not available to alt-tab to. :shrug:
