  1. Hi

    I am having a few problems. I had a problem with a security toolbar which couldn't be removed and another program that was constantly telling me I had infections and that I should download their anti-spyware product. Along with those problems, my homepage was hijacked. The website that is coming up is http://securityiepage.com/.

    I did a range of things to try and remove the problem including a system restore, running AVG-Antispyware, Ad-Aware, SmitfraudFix and a few others which got rid of the toolbar and the balloons, but the homepage still isn't back.

    I've searched ways to get rid of the problem and have tried but nothing seems to work.

    I've attached a hijackthis log and if you could please have a look and tell me whats wrong that will be great.

    Thanks.

    Teri
