Hey guys, just wondering if anyone on here can help me out with a small problem I have.

When I try to search on google I never get exact matches to the keyword I enter and end up with links about how to buy and how to get to what I search for.

When I look in my control panel I find that there is a search assistant installed.

When I try and remove this it just doesnt budge!

Has anyone had this problem before and could you please help me. I have tried spyware remover but this doesnt clear it, please help and your time is much appreciated!

Many thanks,

I installed Adaware and that has removed it from the control panel but the google search is still the same. Any ideas?

thank you so much for your time!

Just to be sure you have a problem and not just getting sponsored links can you give an example of a keyword that does this?

No, no matter what I search for I never get accurate answers, it just sends me to other sites e.g kelkoo.co.uk, whatever this is!

You may have a Qhost. Try here.

If you have tried all of the things that VOG suggested and you are still having this trouble then I suggest that (assuming you are running XP or ME) you do a system restore to a time that you know everything was OK. It will not affect your data but to be sure backup where necessary.

The Qhost fix sorted me out, thank you so much for your time gents!
