    Just yesterday I was bitten by the Hijack search DRSN.
    However, it appears that unlike the others that have posted a similar situation, I have searched my computer for the *.dll files referenced in the removal processes AND
    have not found ANY files/or folders with *SRNG*.

    I have used the regedit to delete the registries with anything pointing to the drsn search engine but they reappear after I've rebooted and restarted IE.

    I have used the IE tools optioins to reset the settings to default. THis seems to work only for that browser setting, assuming I close and reopen my IE Search (which I want to default to with the previews in the right hand content pane. If I open an additional IE browser session (with the first one "fixed"), and I open the search tool, BOTH IE sessions becomes hijacked to drsn search...

    Hi rcky mntere,

    Before you start please unzip hijackthis.exe to a folder of it´s own. The program creates backups in the folder it is in. In a Temp folder they easily disappear.

    Check the following items in HijackThis.
    Close all windows except HijackThis and click Fix checked:

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Page =
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) =
