I have a question. I am running cureit on my main pc as I type. Since he last time I scanned with cureit I had not had SB search & destroy, now I do. Just a few minutes into my scan I picked up the ol startpage 1505. Not quite understanding what I had I used my laptop to look it up. I came upon a Hyper-link for my good friends at Bleepingcomputer and looked at a posted HJT log that had it deleted so I did the same. Reading on into further links I found that someone had finally gotten an answer from DR.Web saying it was a false positive and the problem had been taken care of. Well, it hasn't. after the first instance once cureit reached the restore volume I now have 22 (so far) further instances which I haven't deleted (yet). So, my question is: Is the start page 1505 a way of detecting the presence of a Trojan and actually is a false positive? Or is it a Trojan? Also, just a strange little event. The back and forward buttons have diappeared on mozilla/firefox. I tried uninstall and reinstall, still no buttons any suggestions? Thank you good people!
Respectfully, doc
