My fiancee's moms computer have been infected with a few trojan virus...Trojan startpage 19992, Trojan virtumod, Trojan Ezuland and Trojan Downloader 24772. I have search through this forum but have not come across and cases similar to mine. Most of the solutions seem simple enough, but my problem is that every time I try to open up Internet Explore a different homepage is opened up you know kind of like pop ups...download free music or get something else free. It never opens up to the original homepage. And when I try to type in an address and and go to another page I get the error message from Internet explorer...the one that asks if you want to sent the error report or not. How to I go about solving this problem. I'm not computer illiterate but i am not a genius either. But I have common sense and some basic knowledge.
Thank you

Use the Vundofix tool in the link below.

Some variants of vundo may not be detected by vundofix so the "add more files" option is another way of ridding this malware. However, these files need to be identified and posting a hijackthis log will enable an expert to advise you which files to add if you continue to have problems.

Also some variants of this malware will hide certain entries in a hijackthis log to prevent detection so you need to rename HijackThis before before using it. After installation, open the HijackThis Folder, find the HijackThis.exe file, right-click on it and select "rename". Type Analyze.exe and hit "Enter". Double-click on Analyze.exe (which is still HijackThis) run a scan, save the logfile and copy/paste it into the new thread you start in the HJT forum.
