Adaware is at: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
Spybot is at: http://www.safer-networking.org/

Both are freeware and one or both will cure your hijacking

Hi Subhadeep,

I agree with JConchie on both programs. But as you have those O10 lines in your logfile, watch out...
I suggest you to run this tool first: http://www.merijn.org/files/CWShredder.exe
you will probably see that after you fix the culprit your internet connection won't work anymore, use this tool to get back online:

Both adaware and spybot will remove the hijacker and leave your browser intact.

>>and leave your browser intact.
JConchie, just for the fun of it, check the one and only serious question I've ever asked at EE :)
Adaware did couse my internet connection to drop like a hot potato :)

I do hope Subhadeep has more luck though.

Thanks,
I seemed it worked ran only Spybot - some entries could not be deleted as they were already loaded in memory - upon restarting and running it again it worked ... - Can I uninstall Spy bot now ?
