Hello.  I've taken steps to eliminate the Home Search Assistant/Shopping Wizard and have been successful.  I'm still getting some objects that are being found by Ad-aware, and they keep returning.  I notice some suspicious programs when I run HJT.  Would you please take a look at the scan results below and let me know which ones I should eliminate/fix and the best steps to do so?

Thanks in advance for any help that you can provide.

Regards,

Jef

Hello sharkster .. Smiley

This will help ...

First goto Windows Updates and get ALL the Critical Updates and Service Packs including SP2 and the re-run HJT and Post back with a fresh logfile.

Thanks, Cactus.  I did manage to get rid of the two objects.  They were identified by Spybot as "Avenue A, Inc." and "Core Metrics."  Research indicated that these are two cookies that are not considered that critical, but on principal, I wanted to eliminate them.  I had to run Ad-Aware and reboot a couple of times to complete this.

I also did research on all of the running processes in my HJT log, and they turned out to be legitimate parts of Windows.

With regards to SP2, I have been reluctant to perform this paricular update.  I have heard numerous horror stories regarding application issues.  Based on your recommendation, I will try it.  Wish me luck!

In any case, this objects problem is solved.  If I run into SP2 issues, I suppose I'll have to post to another part of this forum!

Thanks again for your reply.

That sounds good sharkster .. Wink

If you have ANY problems at all with the SP2 Updates don't hesitate to start a new Thread in the appropiate Forum

In the mean time I'm going to Lock this Thread and if you have any issues regarding the HJT log posted here .. PM  myself or another Mod and ask that this Thread be Unlocked.
