    Default ads234

    I hate to repeat this topic as I see this has been asked, but I am just following the instructions in the first sticky post above.

    I have followed all the steps for removing ads234. When I click on website from my favorites to visit, I still see the url of ads234 at the bottom of the IE toolbar. Also, some pages do not run properly, or don't pull up at all.

    The following is my hijack this log. I can't really make heads or tails of it comparing it to the other people who have had answers, so any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    John
