    if they didn't then it must be the spywares in my PC. Normally after you click "search" it would give you a list of all the results. But lately, it kept giving me a list of other searching engines or sometimes the first page would be totally irrelevant. Would this possibly result from all the spywares in my PC? If so how do I get rid of them? Please help me. Thank a million.

    Shadowwar has a fix for this one. :D

    Hmm ok lets take care of the search hijacker.

    Copy the contents of the quote box to notepad:
    Hit save as
    save as filename:
    clear.reg
    under the filename set to all types.
    save it to the desktop.
    Close all IE's
    double click the clear.reg
    when asked to merge say yes.

    Then go and delete this file:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32\msdhmd.dll
    If it won't delete than reboot and delete it.

    Next, let's make sure there is nothing else lurking:

    Could you download HijackThis, extract it from the zip file into it's own directory like c:\program files\hijackthis\hijackthis.exe. This way you will be able to restore backups if anything goes wrong. If you run it from the zip file you will not be able to restore.

    Scan your computer. When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button. Save the log, Ctrl-A to Select All, Ctrl-C to copy and come back to this thread and press Ctrl-V to paste the contents.

    Don't fix anything yet as most of what it lists will be harmless.

    Thanks for the reply. I forgot to mention that I ve been using Spybot S&D and Ad-adware for about 2 weeks. Obviously they didn't fix the problem with Google. Now can I follow your instruction with using Spybot? Will it work the same as Hijack this or it would be better to install Hijack this?

    Also, another question: I can never get rid of these two guys by using Spybot: cleverIEhooker.jeired and DSO exploited. What are they and how to destroy them? I feel like an idiot. Thank you for helping me.
