Error Messages:


I have a work computer, windows 2000 professional. I don't have administrator privliges, for what it is worth. I am having bigtime probs with 69s*xsearch popups and my browser reverting to about:blank.
I ran hijcak this and it initially states the system is denied write access to the files and I need to type C:\WINNT\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. I did.
Here is my hijack logfile:

Remedy

Now delete these Folders or Files that are Highlighted: (You may need enable "Show all Files" and disable "Hide System Files" in Windows Explorer / Tools / Folder Options / View Tab) (You may have to boot to "Safe Mode" in order to delete some Files/Folders)

C:\WINNT\system32\trslib.exe
C:\WINNT\atloq32.exe
C:\WINNT\addnd.exe:jowxs
C:\WINNT\tfido.dll/sp.html#21259

C:\WINNT\dahotfix.log:vunkf
C:\Program Files\Remedy\notifier.exe
C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\ouvqjxeq.exe
