I have figured out where to post this message properly. Sorry for any inconvenience I am new.

When i start explorer a different home page pops up and I have begun receiveing many pop ups. i also have a second search engine window pop up whenever i use google. I looked in the add/remove programs and found MSIESH. I removed it but am still haveing problems. I ran ad-aware and Hijackthis. I am not sure what to do with the logfile it generated. I have saved it and attached a copy. Please advise......

Thanks.

When I start explorer a different home page pops up and I have begun receiveing many pop ups.

This appears to be a CoolWebSearch variant; hopefully, the newest CWShredder will take care of it. Another possibility is the IEFEATS.A Trojan, though this seems less likely. One good bit of advice from that page, though: remember to turn off System Restore before searching for and deleting these files to remove infected backed up files as well. Also, make sure that there's nothing else running when you run CWShredder or HjT.

I have listed the problem files. After performing the above steps, create a new HijackThis logfile and make sure they are gone. The ones below the tilde-line are optional.
