HI!! i have just started having a problem with my internet explorer, I have a nasty looking searchbar attached which appears to be called "yupsearch" I have ran adaware, spybot s&d, spyware doctor and microsoft antispyware(beta) with no luck on removing this nasty. i searched this forum and found a few other people with the same problem but when i try there repair procedures it doesnt seem to help me.. below i have pasted my hijackthis (hjt) log with hopes that someone could possibly help me out on removing this nasty. I believe it is attached somehow to the "pokapoka" entry on the log, but i am not for sure.... thanx in advance for your time and help!!!
