I've been looking at other posts and decided perhaps someone could help me get rid of prosearching.com from my computer. I have run Ad-a-Ware and SpyBot. It gets removed but as soon as I get back on the internet, it's back again. I ran hijack this and here is the log:

I need someone to walk me through what I have to do to get rid of this annoying thing. It takes over my start page and is causing all kinds of popups even though I have a pop up stopper.

Thanks for your help.
I hope I did this right, I've never posted to a forum before.

I had something similar happening a while back.. unfortunately I don't remember how I fixed it. I may have tweaked the /winnt/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file (or was that something else?)

Regardles.. Dump IE and start using firefox. You'll thank yourself in the morning. http://www.mozilla.org
