  1. Hey,

    I was wondering if anyone could help, I ran hijackthis and attached it to this post. Somethings hijacking my IE, when I click on a link to go to a specific webpage it diverts me to a random advertising site. Ran spybot and that doesn't seem to find anything, neither does adaware.

    Please Help.

    Your system has a very nasty browser hijacker.

    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:
    http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe
    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/lonny/Fixwareout.exe

    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 attach the C:\fixwareout\report.txt.

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

    Regards Howard :)
