I think that I have a DNS changing virus...no matter how many times I reset my DNS server addresses to the proper ones the virus keeps coming back in and changing it to the following: 85.255.116.83

I have run Adaware..Spy Bot and have Mcafee and so far they haven't helped much...when I reboot my computer I have about 5min of normal operation through Internet Explorer before it craps out and won't display web pages...if I go in and reset my DNS servers to the right addresses then I have about another 2-3min of browsing before it quits displaying pages and the servers are changed...I have a hijackthis log but I know its not the right place to post it...should I go right into the log posting forum or is there something else I should do first....I appreciate any and all help!


Forgot to mention.. I am running WINXP Pro
