Default search engine hijack?

2 posts in this topic

My default search engine that I use from the address line has been replaced with topsearchcenter.com and I cannot change or get rid of it. Any ideas?

Hi ,


Apologies for the late reply, we've been quite swamped in here as you can probably see.


Are you still needing help?


I'm now subscribed to this topic so I will receive a notice from the board as soon as you reply, so I can be here much more quickly than it has taken to get to your new topic.


If you still need help we need two things:


1. Your Adaware Scan log with the latest reference file update.


Please make sure that you are using

Ad-aware SE Build 106r1

Note: If your version is 6.0 and not the SE, you need to uninstall and get the latest version from the above link.


[if not Uninstall your old Ad-aware first then install SE]

See here for how to get the latest verison of Ad-Aware:



Then use the WebUpDate

to get the latest Definition file

SE1R131 09-11-2006

To do this Open Ad-aware

Click the WebUpDate

button at the top right hand side of the Ad-aware screen (The world globe).

Click "Connect"

Ad-aware will then download the latest Definition file for you.

To make sure it is updated , look at the main

Ad-aware screen, and look under "Initialization Status"

It should say the Latest Definition file.

then scan doing a "Full Scan"

and then post your logfile here by using the Add-Reply Feature .

As Logs are stored in :

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Lavasoft\Ad-aware\Logs\.

An easy way to get there is to

click Start,

click Run

And type in and press ENTER: %appdata%

then click Lavasoft

then Ad-Aware

and then Logs.

scroll down to find the latest one that you have

(by date & time)

and open it right Click select all

copy and then paste the contents of it here.


2. A diagnostic log from this free tool called HijackThis
