    I don't see anything in the log, so lets try a good clean up and see that helps:

    Download CCleaner from :-

    http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ (click the download tab)

    doubleclick the ccsetup.exe file and install the program...

    At the Cclean setup screen &Install opitions Uncheck the Add Ccleaner Yahoo ! Tool bar unless you want it

    After installing, go to Start > programs > CCleaner > Options > Advanced > UNCHECK "Only delete files in Windows Temp folder older than 48 hours"

    Make sure the "windows" tab is selected

    Under "internet explorer" tick...

    Temporary internet files
    Cookies* > see Note below
    History
    Recently typed URL's
    (leave this unticked if you DON'T want to clear the drop down list in the address window of IE)
    Delete index.dat files
    Last download location
    Autocomplete form history


    under "Windows explorer" these are optional, but you can safely tick them all if you wish, they are only "most recently used lists"

    Other explorer MRU's
    (leave this unticked if you DON'T want to clear lists such as the start\run list)

    under "System"

    Tick ALL these ...


    under "Advanced"

    no need to tick any of these (but you can if you want, and realise what they do)


    Applications tab...

    These will mostly clean out old log files for these applications...

    Clean:- (if you use them)

    Firefox/Mozilla (optional - leave the cookies - see note)
    Opera
    Sun Java
    ZoneAlarm

    ...
    Personally I clean everything in the applications tab... but you tick what you want...

    Note: *If there are any cookies you want to keep (if you remove the cookie for a site you require a password for, you will need to re-enter your passward when you next visit that site) ... click options > cookies > then keep the cookies you want.

    click "analyse" if you want to see a list of what is going to be removed, before it is removed.

    Or

    click "run cleaner" to let it get on with it's work... clicking this will result in the following pop-up

    "This process will permanently delete files from your system. Are you sure you wish to proceed?"

    click OK.

    Let us know how things are.

    That helped a lot. But i find program called my way search assistent on my computer under the add/remove programs sections. I can't seem to get ride of it. Last time i had problems with my computer i was told this was a program that hijacked your browser. But i can't seem to get ride of it under the add/remove section and it doesn't show up on the hijack log.

    When you are in the Add/Remove looking for this program, when you click on it, does it give the option to "Change/Remove"?

    I really think is just a left over entry in the add/remove panel. It doesn't exist.

    Go to C drive, open the drive and check on what is in Programs files.
    Look for "MyWebSearch" folder. If found remove it. I doubt that you will find it. There should be entries in the HJT similiar to these:

    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {00A6FAF6-072E-44cf-8957-5838F569A31D} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\SrchAstt\1.bin\MWSSRCAS.DLL

    O2 - BHO: mwsBar BHO - {07B18EA1-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL

    O3 - Toolbar: My &Web Search - {07B18EA9-A523-4961-B6BB-170DE4475CCA} - C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSBAR.DLL

    O4 - Startup: MyWebSearch Email Plugin.lnk = C:\Program Files\MyWebSearch\bar\1.bin\MWSOEMON.EXE

    O8 - Extra context menu item: &Search - http://bar.mywebsearch.com/menusearc...p=ZWYYYYYYYYUS


    It was probably installed, by default, from Dell But there other programs that install it like Smiley Central.

    Suggest that you run through the programs we asked to be run before posting a HJT. Make note, save the log of anything Pandasoft finds but won't fix. Adaware and Spybot should remove any left of over registry entries for the Mywebsearch:

    http://www.help2go.com/component/opt...wtopic/t,9709/

    Let us know how is goes.

    I have run adaware and spypot and they have not found anything. I refuse to run anything from panda, i had a big problem getting ride of that program when i was trying to install mcafee. I guess the mysearchassistent much just be a left over with files somewhere because nothing seems to be picking it up.

    Hi

    The entries in add/remove just point to the uninstall file for the program...

    If you have deleted the folder with the uninstall file in it, it will leave the registry key in add/remove programs... no files, just a registry key...

    To remove the entry in Add\remove programs.......

    Go to start\run and type regedit

    Navigate to :-

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ SOFTWARE\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Uninstall

    Click the + next to Uninstall

    In the list of folders, you should see "Search assistant uninstall" .... right click and delete the folder.

    if you don't see it, then open the folders and look in right hand pane, for the heading "Displayname" ... this is what you see in add\remove, when you find the folder with "Search assistant uninstall" in it ... delete it.

    I must warn you that editing the registry can make your system inoperable, so you should BACKUP your registry before editing it (in case you make a mistake)

    An easier and safer way would be to use TweakUI ... click on the add\remove tab (in TweakUI) and delete it from there

    cheers
