I am running XP Professional protected by MS firewall, McAfee Virusscan and MS Beta antispyware. My PC has been hijacked by hotoffers.com which resets my homepage and has downloaded a range of undesirable icons and hotlinks on to my desktop.

I have run AdAware, spyware Doctor, spysubtract, Fixwelch and Registry Mechanic all to no effect. I have run Virusscan and Spyware Doctor in DOS, again to no effect.

Can anyone help?

Maybe you should consider posting a Highjack This Log. This link will take you to a detailed tutorial on how to post a log.

Good Luck! :thumbsup:

How to Post a Highjack This Log

Just please keep in mind that all Highjack This Team Members are volunteers. One must practice a little patience, when waiting for help. I promise you though that they will get to you as soon as they are able.

And above all do not attempt to work on your log yourself. And only take the advice from an official HJT Team Member. Which will show under thier name and avatar.

One more thing. Do not reply to your own post. As the Team keeps an eye out for zero replies. If they see a reply they will assume that someone is already helping you out. Then I'm afraid that you may get lost in the shuffle.
