    Hi

    I debugged my system about a week ago. I have now done an Ad-aware and spybot scan again as I was once again getting my homepage as zestyfind or something. Below is my hijack log

    Logfile of HijackThis v1.97.7

    Hi frales,

    The reason for the zestyfind hijack is either gone or you put it on the ignore list for HijackThis.

    Your log looks clean now, read this on how to minimize the risk of infection: http://boards.cexx.org/viewtopic.php?t=957.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    You might want to disable loadqm.exe too....(although its not considered malware it is unessacary)

    http://www.langa.com/newsletters/2001/2001-09-17.htm#5

    I personally would delete it from the windows folder.If its being used by windows and wont let you , just rename it to loadqm.txt then reboot and delete it.

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\QTTASK.EXE" -atboottime
    as it is really required at startup
