    You don't say what is giving the message, so I'll guess it's KAV 6's Registry Guard? That particular Key (ie SearchUrl) is used by malware to redirect Internet Explorer's search pages. Here's an example:-

    http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/print126299.htm

    You should go into safe mode and scan there, otherwise a HJT log may be your best bet.

    It looks like a warning from Ad-Watch(Ad-aware) as i used to have it installed but i could be mistaken.
