    A few weeks ago I went to change my mail and news settings under Tools in IE when I noticed that my "show related links" button had been replaced with "I See You Now!!". When you click on it, it routes you to a website saoura.com. I have no clue how to get rid of it. I have run Ad-Aware and Spybot. My McAfee virus scan didn't remove anything. I've tried downloading a new IE and it's still there. If anyone here can help me get rid of this I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

    Here's the HijackThis logfile:

    First, check in Add/Remove programs for an entry for Ares. If found, uninstall it.

    Have Hijack This fix all of the following by placing a check in the appropriate boxes and hitting fix checked. Make sure all browser and all Windows Explorer windows are closed before fixing.
