Dear friends

Be careful with sites like (You may become victims of fiend minds) :

[ Links removed by admin because they pointed to X-rated sites ]

Unfortunately links above are now the start up page on my I E 6 ;
I had never visited the damn pages before this unwanted change ;
such change is unwanted and would be unauthorized if I had chance ;

I simply cannot change it as start up page option is now disabled (buttons disabled and into the address box is one of those damn URLs every time I open up my browser ) ;

I never authorized the installation of any kind of plug in (or , nav bar , program , etc ) that pops up and usually is offered as "free stuff" ;

Simply I dont know how it happened , it makes me think of invasion , spyware ;

Every time I open up the browser Ive got one of the damn pages and besides that many other pages with pornography ;

Ive tried to uninstall (to get back to version 5.5 as a matter of fact , its not possible to uninstall) and reinstall version 6 , but it does not matter what I do , start up page keeps the same ;
Ive searched for strange folder , for any suspect key into the register , but without any result ;

Can someone shed some light on how to fix it ?

I am realy feeling furious about that ;

Cheers

RW

You have been hijacked! Go to www.Download.com, in the search box, type spybot. This will give you the link to Spybot - Search & Destroy. Download and run the program, but before doing a scan, click the online button, then Search for Updates. Once it finds the updates, download them and install. Only after installing the updates should you scan your system.

Other places to look for information are the best list of startup programs: http://www.pacs-portal.co.uk/startup_pages/startup_full.htm
and the best list of malware and hijackers I have found is at http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/Darnit.htm

The IP#'s/port #'s are changed when a packet is going out through an interface and IP Filter matches it against a NAT rules.

Hey TallCool
I have done exactly as you suggested, spybot has cleared the damn file , placed by ALEXA , that damn and hateful page ;
However it has not solved totally the problem , the IE6 buttons to define the startup page keep uncheckable ;
Is there a way to fix it ? (a .dll or another else file must be corrupted I suspect, but dont know what )
Thank you very much for your support
Cheers
