my search engine is being redirected (using Google) nearly 100% of the time and I haven't a clue where the proble is.

Here is a Highjackthis log, but I don't know enough about it to isolate the problem.

My research is showing this to be your problem

O2 - BHO: D - {7AA85BE6-ABCE-3C5D-B796-1B2B624D334B} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gl44078.dll

I would get a second opinion though.

Thanks for taking the time to help. I appreciate your effort.

Okay, I'll wait for a second opinion before removing the gl44078.dll and its registry address.

But just so I don't have to bother anyone again, as I want to learn how to do this sort of thing myself . . . . . How did you reach your conclusion?

I used an HJT log analyzer such as this one

http://www.2-spyware.com/hjt.php

Then I did some Google research on the files that are harmful according to the HJT analyzers to find which file causes problems similar to what you are experiencing.

But these are going off of others opinions about the files and not necessarily professional by any means, so another opinion is always good. And a proper backup never hurts either.

Hope that helps.

If you run hijackthis again and place a check in the box to the left of the following entry;

O2 - BHO: D - {7AA85BE6-ABCE-3C5D-B796-1B2B624D334B} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\gl44078.dll

close all browser windows and hit "fix checked," that is all you need do.

  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.
  • Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
  • Select it and click Remove.
  • Then Download and install the newest version from here:
