Awhile back my cpmputer ended up with a virus of some sort, I guess a hijacker, actually, that constantly made our homepage www.blazefind.com. Most links we would click lead us right back to Blazefind, and our cpmputer was sooo slow. We took it to a specialist and he fixed it, but we have it again. I can't afford to get it fixed again, is there anything else I can do? We have Norton 2005 and Ad Aware, but neither help. It's gotten to the point that sometimes it won't even let me see certain websites anymore. Help!!!

Maybe you should consider posting a Highjack This Log. This link will take you to the HJT Forum. Please read the pinned topics at the top. There you will learn all that you need to know regarding the the posting of your log. Good Luck! :thumbsup:


Just please keep in mind that all Highjack This Team Members are volunteers. One must practice a little patience, when waiting for help. I promise you though that they will get to you as soon as they are able. :flowers:

And above all do not attempt to work on your log yourself. And only take the advice from an official HJT Team Member. Which will show under thier name and avatar.

One more thing. Do not reply to your own post. As the Team keeps an eye out for zero replies. If they see a reply they will assume that someone is already helping you out. Then I'm afraid that you may get lost in the shuffle.
