Another fine mess I was called upon to deal with but have had no luck in solving this pesky problem. I beleive IE had been hijacked on my neices computer. Here are the symptoms. Firt problem was that after going to 3 or 4 web pages she gets a "Page cannot be displayed" error. Even on pages that we know are valid. Next problem that occured was that the browser suddenly showed this line in the address bar, "k-the-fbi-got-my-info"" then a bunch of other gibberish as well (sorry I can't remember exactly what it all was but it pointed the browser to an apparently empty web page.) I searched in google for anything relating to the following search criteria (k-the-fbi-got-my-info). All I got were three pages (all in german) and upon more recent searches I got one german page and two Italian pages, all linked to use groups relating to spyware and trojan horses. Has anyone else seen this problem? If not I feel that in the near future we will be made more painfully aware of this nasty hijack. I ran spybot search and destroy, adaware, updated virus scan (AVG as well as Avast). The one thing I did do that lessened the pest was to remove XP service Pack 2. The computer ran alot faster and although the page does come up, it lasts for a split second and then returnes to the requested URL. This leads me to believe that the hijack is taking advantage of a security hole in SP2. God I wish she'd let me load Mozilla Firfox on her machine!
