Help re: Hugesearch.net spyware

Everytime I use the address bar in my browser I am redirected to a 'Hugesearch.net' homepage.

I understand it may be a worm brought in via email when my virus protection was off.

I also have heard it resides in the fonts.hta file, but I cannot find this file.

Have tried to get rid to no avail. Have also installed ad-aware 6 but this didn't help either.

Can anyone help?

If you are still having problems please go to click here , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip into it's own folder, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please show us its contents.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.

Post your log either click here or click here and someone will help you clear out the nasties
