Hello,

When using Internet Explorer or Firefox, my search results return ads. This happens for Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Ask.com seems to work correctly.

For example, when I search for anything, the search takes a long time and I get results for apartmentfinder.com, couponmountain.com, tazinga.com, etc. I never get any search results pertaining to what I actually searched for. I tried running a number of spyware/malware programs. Some threats were found and I removed them. I also ran HijackThis. I analyzed this log on spyandseek.com. It found two entries marked as "bad". I removed them, but unfortunately I do not remember what they were. I've restarted my machine a number of times through this process, and I am still having the problem. The spyandseek.com analyzation for my most recent HijackThis log doesn't mark anything as "Bad".

Also, upon startup of my computer, the Welcome to Windows sound seems to play later than normal. I am not sure if this is related, but it seems like something extra is loading during the startup.

Below is the DDS log I have created, as recommended by the Preparation Guide for this forum. Also attached are the attach.txt and ark.txt files. I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks in advance.
