Hi

My computer is infected with some sort of Adware/Spyware/Virus that adds links to certain words, which if you click on them expecting them to be a legitimate link it send you to www.server4.103092804.com with adverts.

Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I have Norton Anti Virus and have done varies Adware and Spyware scans, none of which have solved the problem.

Help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Hi Claire88, welcome to DaniWeb :D

So that we can see exactly what you have running on your system, I suggest you get the self-extracting version of HijackThis from here (in line 2):
http://www.malwareremoval.com/downloads.html

Then, close any open browser windows, 'Scan and Save Log' with hijackthis, copy the log, and paste it here in this thread.

Claire88. Ordinarily the self-extracting version of hijackthis will install hijackthis to C:\Program Files\HijackThis, but somehow your's has managed to install hijackthis into a temporary folder. You will have to create a new folder in a permanent directory (on your desktop is fine) and move hijackthis into it.
When done, rescan with hijackthis and post the log please.

Hey,

Problem seems to have been solved (fingers crossed) so will leave you to help everyone else!

Thanks for your help up to know

I had this same problem and fought it for literally months. I tried using Spybot Search & Destroy, Adaware, Norman Anti-Virus, Hijackthis, Microsoft Anti-spyware Beta, & Spyware Doctor, among others, and none of them detected the problem. Then I happened upon here http://vil.nai.com/vil/content/v_134082.htm
and here http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/adware.iehost.html
and found that all I had to do was remove the program "IE Host R3" That was at least a couple weeks ago and my computer works perfectly now.
