Well hello. I am very new to this forum, (about 5min). And I come to you guys looking for a little help. I consider myself a computer novice when it comes to most things, yet i do know my general way around. So i will get to the point. Hijacker. I don't like it
And trust me it has definitely moved-in and is decorating its neat little file folder, somewhere in my computer. Just to give you an idea, I will tell you in all sincerity, that it has inturrupted me writing this thread over 10 times already....I have Microsoft Anti-Spyware, AVG, ZoneAlarm, Spywear-Search and Distroy. I recently downloaded Microsoft Anti-Spywear, and it seems to be the only program which recognizes i have a hijaker on my system in the firstplace. Now...the hijacker simply opens my browser, (firefox), and trys to connect to "hot offers.com" about every minute. I tried deleting FireFox, yet it only started using Internet Explorer..... With a name like "HotOffers" You might question my Internet activity prefferences...yet i can assure you I have no reason, or interest in the world to go to such a site, thus i know not how i seem to have "picked up" a hijacker like this. Now, when MA-Sbeta detects it it says it deletes it...but it pops up no matter how many times I do the full scan and have it fix it. I looked to try and find a file path to manually delete it. Yet when i ask for more information, it says it is: Internet Explorer Start page Http:Hot Offers.com. Not to mention it can never find the site, so it always pops up a "operation timed out" window as well. Well I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to read this plea for help. As I would like to use a program un-interupted again! This has been on my PC for over 2 months now. Thanks in advance.
