Recently my IE browser has been redirecting me to a site called "hipointltd.com" then redirecting me again to another site usually a random virus scan or search engine. Also my IE browser decides to take a dive and tell me there is a problem, tries correcting the issue but wishes to cancel itself. I've ran my AV software and all I come up with are cookies but no real trace of the bug. I took a hijackthis! log and wish to have a tech savvy individual correct my issue please. If I have done something wrong, forgive popping my nasty hijacking cherry. Thanks.

Hijackthis! log is attached.

Well I think I've figured out where that Hijacker was hiding. Disguised as an IE Add-on. :thumbsup: <--- this was what it looked like.

Back to what it was disguised as. If anyone is having an issue with this redirecting hijacker, go to your add-ons and disable "Codec pack" this has stopped the hijacking to hipointltd.com and stopped the IE crashing issue.

Possibly smuggled into my computer from downloading a random file that I later cancelled, but was too late. Not sure if that was how it was received but....I'll be positive of what I'm downloading next time.

Admin/Mod can now close this topic, thanks.
