My Acer laptop has been infected with Searchqu. My research led me to this site as a place to post my hijackthis results for help to know how to interpret the results and what to delete/what not to delete. I just saw, however, a notice on this site saying not to post hijackthis results here. Please clarify.

Searchqu is a potentially unwanted program rather than an infection. You will need to deal with it through Internet Explorer>manage add-ons>toolbars and disable/delete Searchqu and anything from Bandoo Media. Drop down to Search providers and choose another search engine for default then disable Web Search. Go to Tools>internet options and reset your home page to what you want.

You will need to do the same thing with each browser.

Be very careful when downloading/installing anything to ensure that extra applications are unchecked
or they end up installed as well.
