    Sometimes you will notice lines like this in a log:
    R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497}_ - (no file)

    HijackThis versions older then 1.99 were not able to remove them so advise to:

    Download Registrar Lite from here:
    http://www.resplendence.com/download/reglite.exe

    Put it in its own folder. You may want to keep this program. It is an excellent free, registry editor.

    Copy and paste the follow text into the address bar, then hit 'Go':
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\URLSearchHooks

    In the pane on the right are the values associated with that key.
    We want to remove this one -> {CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497}_
    Notice the underscore at the end, all the others with that need to go as well.

    Right click on it, and select delete.
    If you get a confirmation question, respond OK then close out the program.
