    Whenever I do a web search on Goggle or Yahoo I get a popup window that
    has links to it that begin http://cassandra.searchassistant.net
    followed by a long string of random characters. It does NOT do this on
    the Goggle Advanced search. I have seen one other reference to this,
    and CWShreader is recommended. It didn't work. I know this is some kind
    of browser hijacker tailored to Goggle and Yahoo, but I can't find how
    to clear it. I have also run Spybot Search and Destroy and Spyware
    blaster as well, but nothing.

    Any tips? recommendations? Might it help to run this in safe mode? (now
    that I think about I wilol try).
    Any other recommendations?
