Search from Address Bar Fixed

As previously mentioned, my Internet Explorer Address-bar searching functionality got hijacked, and was not restored after running Spybot Search and Destroy.

I found another free tool called HijackThis that was able to restore the search functionality as well as report other suspicious system settings.

I would warn that HijackThis really isn't for a novice, because a lot of what was reported was legitimate for my particular system. But it's a lifesaver just the same.
