    hi all. i've tried everything to remove this browser hijack but i can't seem to figure it out. i've run Spybot and SpywareBlaster to no effect. i've done the obvious by trying to delete the lines referencing the hijack site from the registry (via HijackThis) but it keeps coming back when i reboot my pc. so i think i'm missing the actual .exe file that loads this hijacker.

    i appreciate any help with regards to removing this hijacker. thanks in advance! below is my log:

    Hi ea989,

    I think so to, but that is understandable if you were looking for an exe ;)

    Check the items listed below in HijackThis, close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    Then reboot and delete:
    sys.reg

    My pleasure. In fact, I found a new CWS domain through your log.

    So thanks you as well, :)
