I downloaded hijack this because I heard it is the only way to delete the ads234 spyware.  I received my log file but do not know what to check or what to do next.  I appreciate any help you can give me.  Here is my log, thank you.

and from next time before posting the LOG file here,,,, have it analysed it here >> http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english
and it will automatically analyse it for uand will tell u that what are SAFE and NASTY entries present in the LOG !!

CAUTION: Before fixing the entries in hijackthis, make sure that they are really Nasty and can be deleted, better u first research for it on Google and then when u will confirm that they shud be deleted, Fix them. And whenever u run Hijackthis, run it from a New folder on ur desktop, so that in case of any problem, u can take advantages of its created backups of fixed items. And in case if u still face problems in dealing with it, just analyse ur log at the above site, and then scroll down where u will see a Save Analyse button, hit it and it will save ur Log Analysation, then copy the link of that page and paste it here, and we will check it for u :)
