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.

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 ?
