Run another hijackthis scan. Place a check next to the following entries, then close all other windows and click the fix button.

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchweb2.com/searchbar.html
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page = http://searchweb2.com/searchbar.html
R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://searchweb2.com/passthrough/index.ht...dinsurance.com/
R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://searchweb2.com/searchbar.html

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchweb2.com/searchbar.html
R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant = http://searchweb2.com/searchbar.html
R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {4505ED1C-E709-4F9D-330B-34EC03A19624} - C:\WINNT\system32\svehaior.dll

O3 - Toolbar: junksoft - {C16DFDA1-DD48-4892-168C-78F723539974} - C:\PROGRA~1\32WAYS~1\FREE DOES.dll
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Bows Jugs] C:\PROGRA~1\MULTIE~1\Funk Less License.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [] c:\WINNT\System32\
O4 - Global Startup: GStartup.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\GMT.exe

Then reboot into safe mode and delete these folders.
C:\PROGRA~1\MULTIE~1
C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT
C:\PROGRA~1\32WAYS~1

You may have to enable hidden files to find all the files.

Then reboot into normal mode.

Next download spybot and adaware. Update and scan with both. Have spybot fix anything it lists in RED and adaware fix everything it finds. Then reboot and run another hijackthis scan and post your new log here.

Go to your Internet Explorer folder, probably in Program Files. This is mine:
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer

Do Right click and select Create Shortcut. Drag the shortcut onto the Desktop and rename it if you want.
