Thread: Help! Something Hijacked My Browser




  1. Unhappy Help! Something Hijacked My Browser

    Sorry for the caps. Damnit this problem is pissing me off. Ok so the other day I open up ie 6.1 and instead of my usual home page I get some advertisement crap and a pop up. I change my home page and it does the same thing. So I go to task manager close all suspecious apps. then run msconfig> startup services> no unusall apps here. Then I dl the latest resource file for adaware. Run it. FInds 8 new "browser hijack" things. Delete them and open up ie to find the advertisements as a homepage YET again. And Ie likes to crash erverycouple of secounds now as well. Oh yea I also ran norton antivirus which did find a couple new things. Ran it again and found nothing. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Both are in my signature. It should be fine if you let CWShredder do it's work. Post the log of HijackThis if you can't figure out how to use it on your own.

    If you've used CWshredder and Hijackthis properly, then the only thing you can do is change your browsing habits. Or, you could just get Mozilla Firefox from my signature. It won't have these problems.

    But did you use HijackThis? You should also try AdAware. The link's in my signature.

    ok i had the exact same CWS.Searchx problem, comes up with a "Search for.." page...
    how i got rid of it, after several days, i ran CWShredder...couldnt really be bothered with Hijack this so i installed Norton Internet Security (2004 pro) and ive never had it come back. works a treat and blocks other nasties as well.
