An icon labeled TAG (TagASaurus) appeared on my desktop. Since then, I have lost my internet access, my browser home page seems to get re-directed and all of my bookmarks have been changed to the same re-direct. I downloaded, installed and ran HijackThis and my log is as follows (any help would be appreciated):

Did you run this in safe mode? If so don't.

Please run HJt again, and check the following items.

Click Fix Checked.

_____________________________________________

First, Download LSPFix.exe to a convenient location. Do NOT run this program. This is only to be used if you lose Internet Access after removing NewDotNet.

To Get rid of NewDotNet, go to:

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:

New.Net Applications or New.Net Domains (anything that says New.Net)

If it is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4: NewDotNet Removal Procedure 4.

In the event that you lose Internet access after removing New.Net, please double-click LSPFix.exe that you downloaded earlier. You will see 2 panels. If there is any file listed in the "Remove" panel on the right-side, leave it as is and just click "Finish>>" then reboot your computer and you should now have access to the Internet. If nothing is listed under the "Remove Panel", do NOT do anything - just close the program. You will need to use another computer to come back here for further instructions on what to do.
