Hello. My browser has been hijacked. Every time I type something in the search box whether yahoo, Google, Live, etc. I always gets redirected to some URL called clickover.cn. I have run three different antirus/antispyware softwares namely AVG, Avast and Malware Bytes. All of them detected a trojan and a memory residet virus. Problem is they delete the trojan and the memory resident virus but it reappears after reboot. I suspect the virus/spyware is replicating itself. I have already scan the boot sector and avast supposedly clened it but after reboot, its still there. I did everything short of reformatting the hard drive but I'm afraid that if the virus is in the boot sector, it wont do any good. Please review my Hijackthis log file and advise of any suspicous registry entries. Thanks
