I am able to get to my homepage but after that when I try to browse the interet, my computer tries to connect but the screen just flashes the home page over and over. It seems like its being redirected but stays on the same page. I ran spybot, stinger, CCleaner and nothing. Tried to run hijack this but it freezes. What else can I do? I am running Windows XP-

What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"? If not, please do so.

Many malware programs can be uninstalled by using Add/Remove Programs so start there first. Click on Start > Settings > Control Panel and double-click on Add/Remove Programs. From within Add/Remove Programs uninstall questionable programs by highlighting them and selecting Remove. Questionable programs may have recognizable names like IntCodec, WinTools, NavHelper, etc. For a list of such programs see BC's Uninstall Programs Database.

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "SAFE MODE".

Then perform this online Virus scan: BitDefender Online Scanner. <- Add a check by "Autoclean".
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.)

Post back if your still having problems afterwards.
