I recently noticed that my Google searches are being hijacked, so I ran my MBAW and it came up with 11 different infections. The first, Trojan Tracur S, has 3 parts: The Registry Data, The file, and the memory module. (called ati2dvaa32.dll)The remaining 8 infections are Malware Trace and simply have random numbers as the file path. I have tried just about EVERYTHING I can think of to get rid of this infection, however, it simply keeps coming back. The steps I have taken so far are simply running Mal-ware Bytes and trying to delete them (fail) I downloaded Hijack This, to try and delete and even used the delete on start-up option (another fail) Finally, I ran in safe mode and attempted to run BOTH MBAW and Hijack this to delete the files, but upon restarting (which both say they need to do in order to complete the removal) all 11 infections are back. I am about at wits end trying to rid myself of this problem, and would HIGHLY appreciate any and all advice to deleting this little bastard. :lol: As far as I can see, it simply makes my computer run SLOW and attempts to Hi jack and redirect every google search I do. Once again thank you all for your time.

P.s.- I also can post the Hi-jack this or MBAW logs if I need to. Also I am running Windows XP SP3
