Okay.

I'm a bad husband. I didn't install XP SP2 on the wife's computer. She got the ABX search toolbar although not the way this article suggest from what I can tell. I suspect DNS poisoning may have been what's been messing up Cablevision's DNS servers too. She knows when it happened too--she was downloading images for the kid to print and color to send to the family for St. Patrick's Day and she clicked on a link she didn't mean to . . .

Anyway, hacking the registry for any keys starting with ABX, and deleting the program directory, seems to have solved the issue for now. Now off to update AdAware, install SP2, etc.
