    Help please. Today my browsers (Mozilla Firefox 0.8, Netscape 7.1, Mozilla 1.8, and ie 6 sp1) all started behaving strange - instead of connecting to my homepage (www.cnn.com) - I noticed it was instead downloading data from ar.atwola.com, even though it says in my addressbar www.cnn.com. After a brief period, i get an error saying my browser has encountered an error and must close. (IE doesnt crash - unbelievable i know - but it too tries to download from the site ar.atwola.com) They have never done this before.

    I updated ran Adaware 6.0 and Spybot S&D, they found nothing. I updated ran my antivirus (Norton Internet Security 2004/Norton Antivirus 2004) - again, nothing. I've redownloaded hijackthis to ensure i have the most recent version and attached the log below.

    Any guidance you can give me would be most appraciated. thanks.
