  1. Hi guys! I'm totaly new to this forum and I found it by scraching the net for some ways to fix a problem I have with a virus!!! The thing is I found out I had something weird going on when lately, as I' m using yahoo, google or any search engine with internet explorer, I end up beeing rederected to some porn seach engines or stuff like that?

    Anyway I was wondering if someone could help me with that cause I don't realy feel like a format process!

    So I'm using Avast, Spybot,Adaware and AVG anti-spyware. I also ran hijackthis and that's what came up!

    Please help!

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system has been hijacked.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:

    Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
    The fix will begin; follow the prompts. You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

    Then, go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above. Also, please attach the C:\fixwareout\report.txt.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
