    Search Assistant (WXpHe)

    When i came to my PC this morning i had a search tool bar (Search Assistant) in my tool bar it looks like it has been highjacked by a site called blaze.com. if you right hand mouse while in the search bar you can change it from a blaze search to a msn or google search but they only search canadian google and msn! does anyone know what this would be under in the registry so i can get rid of the blaze canadian search bar? Also how to get rid of these popups i have been getting since this search assistant tool bar appeared. I have popup manager installed but the popups are opening in new windows and are not actually popups on a page.

    I would start by reading <!post=Anti Adware / Spyware / Hijack,296439>Anti Adware / Spyware / Hijack<!/post> and <!post=Spyware/AdWare/Malware FAQ and Removal Guide,378115>Spyware/AdWare/Malware FAQ and Removal Guide<!/post> by KenK. You'll find links to useful programs (many free) you can download and install to get rid of pests like these.
