    Start page hijacked - Hijackthis log included


    I am at my wits end here! My husband got some spyware on our computer (AGAIN). It is usually not that hard but I can't get this one to go away. I have tried Adaware, Spybot, and several other programs of the same type. Here is my hijack this log.

    Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7
    Scan saved at 7:25:22 AM, on 5/27/04
    Platform: Windows 98 SE (Win9x 4.10.2222A)
    MSIE: Internet Explorer v6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)

    I am pretty sure the things beside R1 and R0 are what is causing this problem, however, it doesn't help to delete them in hijack this. They come right back. Can anyone help? I hate looking at filth whenever I start my browser!

    Hi 001jaycee,

    If you would like, you could start a new thread and post a fresh HijackThis log to see if there is any other clean-up to do. Do not post a log here... start a New Thread!
