At one point I was hijacked. I have done everything listed to clean my system. I have adaware, spybot, and hijackthis. I also ran AVG. My search pane in IE 6.0 is not showing the right options to search. It only shows one little box labeled MSN, when I try to change the options I rather get no options to choose from or just two. I have also tried the repair in Add/Remove Programs for IE.

When I click on the search button I am used to the little list you get on the left side where u can choose what you are searching for, like address, word, web page containing etc. That is no longer there. I had originally posted this in the hijack forum, but was redirected here. I hope someone can help me and I thank you.

I am sorry I forgot to mention, I am working with Win98SE.
Also, I am familiar with editing the registry, but I am not sure where to find the key you referred to 229? I am not super good at this obviously :thumbsup: , but I will give it a try. :flowers:
