Always use Moderator's Advice, if it don't work keep this in mind.

THIS WORKED FOR ME

After dozens of failed attempts with HijackThis Scans, deletions, and reboots to try to fix this pesky 69s*xSearch.com and Real Search, I finally may have found the solution after searching about a certain file. WUCLIENT.EXE!

Run HijackThis and Select all of the Real Search's, the *69 Trusted Zone, & wuclient.exe
Open Task Manager and end wuclient.exe.
Next right click on My Computer and select Properties and turn off System Restore. Click OK.
Go to C:\WINDOWS\system32 scroll all the way to the bottom and delete wuclient.exe
Empty Recycle Bin.
Turn System Restore back on.
Restart.
Rerun HijackThis and TADA! it's gone.

I still have the wuclient.exe file on PC and realsearch problem is solved.
So in my case it isn't nessecary to delete it.
Just delete the false .exe files and ALL files that were created the day the problem occured.

You ONLY have to STOP the process (WUCLIENT.EXE) for the fix to work...NOT Delete it!

Well, I stopped it several times and it kept coming back. I also read on several websites that deleting it would solve the problem and sure enough it did.

That's great Team48Lowes.. Smiley
No fixes are cemented in gold..some work some don't.
Every PC is different so what works for might not work for the next guy.. Wink

Seeing as your all fixed up I'm locking this Thread.. Smiley
