Hijacked, Need Help Please

  1. Hello, I'm new to this forum and I need some serious help with my computer.

    Ever since October 14, 2008 - my search engine and internet are malfunctioning.

    Yahoo/Google search engines will pull up my search results I requested, but when I click the link to view my search results I get redirected to another so called 'search' website displaying references for my search results instead of the information I actually requested.

    Could you please help me out? Whatever is going on, is seemingly blocking some websites completely, and it will not let me update my AVG or SpybotSD programs. I'll post the logs so you can review them and hopefully find a solution for me.

    I did, but I could not download some of the components, it seems this 'hijacker' has blocked certain websites from my access. And, it will not allow my spybot, or AVG to update.

    Oy vey! That is quite interesting HJT log. I think you are describing clickjacking.
    The following recommendation is NOT a solution. This is an attempt to hobble the malware on your computer.
    It is hoped that you can load the MBAM & SAS programs (tools) afterwards.

    Re-run HJT. Check / fix the following.
    DO NOT delete the associated files.
    Two entries related to FF seem to be logical choices.

    If L: is a usb thumb drive - remove it.
    Check / fix this O23 entry. This merely "stops" the process from auto starting.
    If this proves useful, obtain & run the tools. Post the logs.
    Safe mode with networking may be another approach for obtaining tools - no relavant experience on my part.

    This premature use of HJT may require some re-work after the prelims.

    The selection of some of O4 entries is to get a few of the unnecessary startup programs out of the way. All of the Lexmark stuff can go as well.
