I have run all the check listed in the thread. Only SpybotS&D found three DSO exploit that I had it fixed immediately. Otherwise the search crack option is still sticking there!
Any other suggestion?
Thanks a lot

Download and run HijackThis - get it here:

Unzip, double-click "HijackThis.exe" and Press "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Click: "Save Log" (generates: "hijackthis.log")

Next, HijackThis | Config [button] | Misc Tools [button]
Click: Generate StartupList log [button] (generates: "startuplist.txt")

Next, go to the link below.

and post your "hijackthis.log". There are the experts and they will tell you what to do.

Good Luck!

Dear Marianna, I have followed your instruction and scan with HijackThis. In the log, the crack spider is listed so I have it fixed directly by HijackThis.
Thankyou for your help!!!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
