Search-Daily has hijacked my IE

  1. I am having a problem with Search-Daily. Everytime I search something through Google, I am redirected to another website beginning with an IP address, then Search-Daily, then search inquiry. How can I get rid of this? I used Hijack This and have the log file. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I ran Spybot S&D, and got nowhere.

    Search-Daily Hijack

    I had same problem with Search-Daily. Determined my issue was browser add-on bthcis.dll file in Windows/System32, a Browser Helper Object which looked like several other bluetooth files, but does not have a publisher indicated.

    The Search-Daily hijack is stopped if you disable the bthcis.dll in "Manage Add Ons" in IE Tools.

    McAfee stopped this file trying to connect, which made me look at it. Ad-Aware and Spyboy SD do not catch it. I deleted the file in safe mode, and cleaned the registry. I have not had a problem since - which does not mean I won't?
