    Hi RickW,

    Welcome to Wilders.

    Before you start, please unzip or move HijackThis to a separate folder of its own. The program will make backups to the folder it's in. These easily get lost in a temporary folder or a folder with other programs.

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

    R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = file://C:\WINDOWS\System32/left.html

    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Search Bar = http://red.clientapps.yahoo.com/cus...rch/search.html
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =
    R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,CustomizeSearch = res://C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll/sa
    R3 - Default URLSearchHook is missing
    O1 - Hosts: 69.93.33.133 msn.com

    O1 - Hosts: 69.93.33.133 yahoo.com
    O1 - Hosts: 69.93.33.133 www.yahoo.com

    O3 - Toolbar: Searchit Toolbar - {0E1230F8-EA50-42A9-983C-D22ABC2E0099} - C:\PROGRA~1\Searchit\searchit.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [frsk] C:\WINDOWS\frsk.exe

    There also may be hidden files. See HERE for how to show hidden files.

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:

    C:\WINDOWS\System32/left.html
    C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\
    C:\PROGRA~1\Searchit\
    C:\WINDOWS\frsk.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\ZGRMWGQ.exe
    C:\WINDOWS\FLSYPWDK.exe

    Reboot and then post a fresh HijackThis log.

    Regards,
    Kent
