Hello every1,

I am having a MAJOR problem with my IE7 browser. It seems that every other page I try to visit using this browser, I get redirect to the ask.askredirect/search page. I don't know how did this BHO got installed on my machine (windows xp pro).

I tried to find this BHO on my list of programs in the uninstall thingy from the control panel. But, it's not there.

I use this browser out of need bcoz my employer's web apps only deal with IE.

I ran spybot and adaware but neither took care of the problem. I am attaching here the log from hijackthis.

I hope someone can spare sometime to help me here.

Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for your help. So far, it seems that the problem has gone away.

SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition seems to have taken care of it.

Your help is greatly appreciated :)
