Hijack This!

Public service announcement:

OK last week I picked up a very anoying pop-up that Ad-Aware and Spybot would not get rid of. Basically, EVERYTIME I moved my mouse a search box would pop up in my bottom tool bar.

Finally, I stumbled upon something called Hijack This!

Now this little program took care of all my problems. After reviewing this tutorial I was able to remove the malicious lines in my registry.

Anyhow, it's not for the novice but if you've tried everything else it's certainly easier than reformatting your hard drive!
