    Hey,

    I was hoping that some of you could help me out with removing SearchV from being my start page with every restart. I've downloaded Hijackthis and made a log. However, before I delete anything, I wanted to make sure i was deleting the right thing so I don't further fubar anything. I know the R1's need deleting but I'm curious of which 04 needs to be removed.

    Any help would be vastly appreciated.
