Hijacker, etc...

System is Win 98 - IE6 with the MS security patches installed.

My IE6 has been hijacked by Allcybersearch. Here's what I've tried so far: The latest version of CWShredder sometimes finds a "hidden DLL", which it removes. Ad-Aware finds a host of things, some of which it lists as critical malware, others as tracking cookies and data miners. Spybot s&d finds one Allcybersearch entry in the registry. Initially, I looked at, and deleted all the files which were dated in the approximate area of time when the infection might have occurred, then ran Ad-Aware, CWShredder and Spybot again. The problem seemed to be fixed, and for about a day all the subsequent scans were clean. Then, the whole thing came back with a vengeance. My browser was hijacked again, the pop-up ads reappeared, and nothing the three programs I mentioned above can do anything about it. This is definitely something left behind on the computer, rather than a fresh re- infection. Can anyone help?

OK Tom, when you said

"Share the results", I thought you were telling the member to post the log here. I normally don't give people the link for the tutorial because too many people don't even read the first paragraph which supplies two of the forums, instead they try to fix the problems themselves instead of going to a HJT Expert Forum which usually creates more problems than they had in the first place LOL. The same problem happens with the automatic HJT website.
