I did have this, or a similar problem on my own computer, and did mange to remove it by changing the program settings, changing the internet service provider- however, when I tried to do this this time, I saw that where there are normally the use blank button- it changes the setting to : use blank. Literaly
I type google.com- I get anti spyware. I type Comcast.net- I get comcast.net, then when I try to download filehippo,s Ccleaner-I get re-directed. Any program I would normally use to remove spyware, it redifrects from the site. McAffee, AVG, Ccleaner... but I can still, with a lot of patientce, get msn, comcast,etc.
They have obvoisly worked on this over time, and I will say that I know the longer this program exists, the worse it gets.
I have also determined that they are hijacking information, as it is entered, probably a keylogger or something.
I have removed All music, video,temporary internet files,cookies, incomplete url's, and anything modified inthe last 30 days. Tried a system restore, but it won't let me.
I'm sure there is more I can't remember- after 4 hours all of the simple stuff I tried is gone from MY memory. Am going over there tomorrow with my laptop and some hard disk programs (Ccleaner, windows defender, etc) and see if I can't do something that way......
Any Ideas? I WILL write back (BELIEVE ME) with whatever I fin d, as well as at least more info + maybe a snapshot nof the prb.....
anyone more geeky than me?
