Hi all,

This is my first attempt to get some assistance on an issue that I am having with my Internet Explorer being Hijacked. As an example, I do a Google search for "Dogs", I receive a list of hits, but when I select one, I'm sent to Lycos Yellow Pages, or fast-find-answers. The details of my machine are as follows:

Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3
Internet Explorer 8 Version 8.0.6001.18702

I've updated and tried the following:

Spybot Search & Destroy
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
AVG 2001 Free
SUPER AntiSpyware
Re-installed Internet Explorer
Reset Internet Explorer
Delete Internet Explorer History

I ran HijackThis and have attached Scan and Startup Files.

Attached Files
