Everytime I go and type in a website name It takes me directly to a search page. I am using xp. Also when I change my homepage under internet tools when I close out my session it defaults back to that damn search page.. Please help.. I have ran adaware and spybot but to no avail. :mad:

Download HijackThis from here & unzip it into it's own, permanent folder, (Not a temporary folder or the desktop & not directly on your hard drive). Start HJT & with all browser windows closed, press the scan button. When the scan is finished the scan button will change to save. Save the log to a text file, copy the entire contents of the text file & paste it into the body of your post. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET. Most of what is there is harmless & even necessary to the running of your system.

The search page is now gone for some reason. But now I cannot type in any site into my browser. It keeps saying cannot find make sure path or internet name is correct. :rolleyes: The only way I can surf the net is via google or I can click on my favorites. But that is all.. I cannot type in any address in my browser without getting that message.

Also my outlook express seems to be affected it keeps saying

"The host 'pop3.comcast.net' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly. Account: 'pop3.comcast.net', Server: 'pop3.comcast.net', Protocol: POP3, Port: 110, Secure(SSL): No, Socket Error: 11004, Error Number: 0x800CCC0D

God this sux.

You can fix these if you want to save on resources.

O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OSA9.EXE
O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Works Calendar Reminders.lnk = ?

That will just stop them from running at start up. Apart from that your log is good.

Sometimes you can't. Your best bet would be to follow the link in my Sig. *how you got infected* & follow the instructions given their on tightening up security. Thats one of the reasons I use the Opera browser. You cannot get hijacked or redirected.
