  1. I am no expert but willing to learn. U have had my homepage hijacked by which disabled task manger, home page options and many other run commands.
    I have done the following:
    1- restart in safe mode.
    2- open my computer.
    3- drill down to program files.
    4- delete windows update file.
    5- delete keygen.exe under windows update.
    6- empty recycle bin.
    7- shut down and restart.

    This have helped me to start my Internet Explorer whitout any problems so far.
    I hope it would help someone.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    It`s still possible that you have some secondary infections.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    I have split this thread and moved your above post to it`s own thread.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
