    so a "home search assistant" has hijacked your computer??

    can you give us more information about your computer.

    what OS?
    what exactly are the symptons?
    have you downloaded and installed anything that you can remember recently?

    There is no program that is able to fully remove the home search assistant infection by itself. We usually have to do a manual removal.

    妯py展ght, those instructions though good, have a few steps missing to get a computer back in shape properly from this infection.

    Please follow thes instructions if you are still having problems:

    Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

    Download HijackThis from:

    HijackThis Download Site

    Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

    Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

    Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.

    Someone will reply to you after reading this post. DO NOT fix any entries unless you understand what you are doing.
