Hello

My computer is infected with 'IE Defender' - it displays the exact same fake google search as described by 'Grinler' and I get frequent messages saying my computer has been hijacked.

The first thing I did was to run AVG - It found and deleted 'Trojan SHeur.AEWV'. I also ran Windows defender and Ad-Aware (no hits).

I have tried to follow the procedures set out by 'Grinler' but cannot find any of the files mentioned. I have also attempted to run 'Fixied' but it seems to be blocked as an unacceptable program to enter the registry.

I have attached the HijackThis log. I can't find any of the folders/files mentioned but the problem persits (thank goodness I can switch to Firefox)

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Hello

Problem solved.

Thanks to all who looked.

After many scans 'Trojan Remover' found and got rid of Trojan Downloader Zlob and a few other bits.

Fingers crossed that it will not return.

Thanks
