I ran all of the programs that were recommended and for which information, I am very grateful. However the problem persisted so I contacted Norton Utilities and was informed that this was a brand new Trojan Horse that first showed up on 12/20/2003 and that a fix was developed on 12/23/2003. I attempted to D/L the update but my PC froze and I was unsuccessful. I was running Norton Internet Security 2001. I have now purchased Norton Internet Security 2004 at BJs for $49.99 and Norton will give me a $30 rebate - not a bad deal. I haven't loaded it in yet and will have to run the Update before using it but I am optimistic about it being able to, finally, get rid of this Trojan.
To all of you who have been so helpful - I much appreciate your input.
I'm trying to get rid of a program that has taken over my Home Page on IE6 and has deleted my Favorites and has loaded my Favorites list with a long list of junk. Whever I try to access Amazon, I get redirected to this Spyware site. It is called WEBCOOLSEARCH.COM.
Is there a Shareware program that will find and destroy this Spyware? I am using Norton Internet Security complete with Firewall and have run their Scan program but I still have the Spyware.
I'd greatly appreciate any help that you can offer.
