Welcome to CTH, coreyb!

Let's see what we can find with the following...

Please download OTL from: Here
  • Save it to the Desktop.
  • OTL is does not need to be installed, simply click OTL.exe to run the program.
  • Click the Scan All Users checkbox.
  • Press the Run Scan button.
  • Two reports appear:
    • OTL.txt <-- Opened on the Desktop
    • Extra.txt <-- Minimized on the TaskBar

Please post (do not attach) the OTL.txt and Extra.txt reports in your reply.

Also, which browser(s) do you use..Internet Explorer, FireFox, Chrome, any other?

This computer has firefox, Chrome and IE installed on it, using Firefox predominantly. I started OTL scan, is it normal to scan FireFox settings for a long period?

Sometimes malware blocks OTL.exe

Try one of these alternatives:

Tried the two applications, both failed each time hanging up on "scanning firefox settings".

Let's see what this program does...

Download DDS from one of these locations:
Link 1
Link 2

Save it to the Desktop

Make sure you temporarily disable your AntiVirus, Firewall, and any other AntiSpyware applications. They may interfere with the programs we are about to run.

If you wish to look at information on how to disable these programs, please refer to the information available through this link

XP: Double-click the downloaded file to run the program
Vista/Windows 7: Right-click DDS and select 'Run as Administrator'

When done, DDS opens two logs:
-DDS.txt (Opens on the Desktop)
-Attach.txt (Minimized on the TaskBar)

Save the reports to your Desktop, and post both reports in your reply.

SearchQu/SearchNu is installed as an Add-on in FireFox, Internet Explorer, and other browsers.

Add-ons usually require your permission before they are installed on your computer. However, some are installed without your knowledge!

To remove any SearchQu/SearchNu Add-ons from FireFox:
At the top of the Firefox window, click on the FireFox button
Click Add-ons, for the Add-ons Manager tab to open.
In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Extensions or Appearance panel.
Select the add-on you wish to remove: SearchQu
Click the Remove button.
Click Restart now if it alerts you to do so.
Your tabs are saved and restored after the restart.

To permanently disable SearchQu add-ons in Internet Explorer:
Open Internet Explorer
Click the Tools button, and then click: Manage Add-ons Under Show, click All add-ons.
Click the add-on you want to disable, and then click: Disable
Repeat the above step for every add-on you want to disable.
When finished, click: Close

Now, to change your Home page in Internet Explorer
Go to Tools > Internet Options
Select the General tab
Click the Use default button, or, enter the website of your choice, instead of searchqu.com.
Click: Apply > OK to save the changes.

To change your Home page in FireFox, go to Tools > Options
Under the General tab, reset the startup homepage, or, change it to the website of your choice, instead of searchqu.com.

After doing the above, are you still having SearchQu/SearchNu problems?

Please go back to Post #2, and see if you can now run OTL.
If yes, please post its results.

Did you try the alternatives on Post #4?

If so, at what point is it hanging?
