I have a nasty spyware/adware problem on my PC. I have IE, Firefox, opera installed on it. For about more than 6 months this PC is having the problem of IE starting up with some web site whenever I browse usig any browser (Firefox, IE, opera). Some times the web pages that open up are related to my searches using other browsers.
This is so nasty that I can't find the root of problem despite running Spyware SD, adware, McAfee virus protection all set up and frequently used to scan. Spyware and Adware are unable to fix some registry entries. They complain it to be dangerous but can't fix. I can't delete the files/registry entries as those are windows system files (core.sys)
I even deleted IE and ran without it for 4 months and reinstalled recently. The problem comes back. I suspect there is some program that is running that is causing only IE to start up with specific web site. Also this program knows what I am searching.
This problem could be comon and known to many. But I can't find right solution. PLease help fixing this. (While I am writing this IE started 5 times with different web pages. No, those don't seem to be pop up ads from one web site.)
