Hi, I need help with a problem of a red circle with a white x being on my toolbar, it constantly puts me on a site called "newgenlook.info" it highjacks the page I am reading infact it happened and already erased this post while I was writing it when I clicked back. It will also sometimes pop up a porn site as well, I tried the only programs I have antispyware programs. It will also attempt it even while offline. I am running off Windows 98, and when I write click or anything on the x the site pops up again. can you please help me to remove this?

Hello cardcaptor_yue and welcome to Bleeping Computer

Good luck and I hope you find your experience here a positive one.
