HELP! I constantly being reciredted to http://search-to-find.com/sec.php?qq=... after performing a search in Yahoo, Altavista, etc.

I have scanned and purged various spyware, adware and viruses using Norton, Adaware and Spybot. But this redirct will NOT go away.

My home page is also often times reset to various sites. After purging, it works ok for a bit, but then ALWAYS returns.

Performance on my PC while browsing has dropped dramatically. I fear some (or most!) of the processes running on my PC are spyware, but I do not have the knowledge to know the difference between "good" and "bad" stuff.

I have included my most recent scan from HijackThis.

Any help on telling telling me the root cause of my issue(s) would be greatly appreciated!!!

Please Download CWShredder from HERE and run the Program in safe mode . Press the "Fix Button" Let it fix all variants. Next, Close the program and all windows and IE windows and run hijackthis and Post a Fresh log.

Reboot to SAFE mode to run CWShredder

How to start computer in safe mode

Then these 2 programs .
Ad-Aware and Spybot

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware at ADAWARE

Setup Ad-Aware .
After installing AAW, and before running the program, update reference files by using the bottom right button in the program, labeled "Check for Updates."

Launch the program, and click on the Gear at the top of the start screen.

Click the "Scanning" button.
Under Drives & Folders, select "Scan within Archives".
Click "Click here to select Drives + folders" and select your installed hard drives.

Under Memory & Registry, select all options.
Click the "Advanced" button.
Under "Log-file detail", select all options.
Click the "Tweaks" button.

Under "Scanning Engine", select the following:
"Include additional Ad-aware settings in logfile" and
"Unload recognized processes during scanning."
Under "Cleaning Engine", select the following:
"Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."
Click on 'Proceed' to save these Preferences.
Please make sure that you activate IN-DEPTH scanning before you proceed
.................................................
Increase the strength of Ad-Aware by installing the VX2 Cleaner plug-in.
Close Ad-Aware 6.
Download the free VX2 Cleaner here.
Install the VX2 Cleaner.
Start Ad-Aware and click on "Plug-ins".
Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Plugin".
If your computer isn’t infected, click "Close".
If your computer is infected:

Reboot your computer.
Scan your computer with Ad-Aware.
Remove any VX2 objects detected.
Reboot your computer again.
Run a second scan to make sure the files have been removed from your computer.
.................................................................

I added the ad-aware info just to make sure you ran it with the proper settings .I know you allready ran it ,but not sure if it was optimized .
