Posted 29 January 2009 - 04:07 PM

My computer is performing strangely and I would very much appreciate some assistance as I have exhausted my knowledge. I cannot access certain common websites through my Internet Explorer 7 browser (page states unable to display) and other web addresses when typed into the address bar automatically generate a Google image search (undesired). I have tried other web browsers without success and have verified that the problem is not my internet service provider. A professor of mine suggested I download and run HijackThis as he suspects my browser has been "taken over". I have run the program but cannot interpret the results. Please advice. For more information, I have installed on my computer a student verison of ArcGIS 9.3 software provided from the manufacturer ESRI for my university studies. The programming language used for ArcGIS is Python. I do not believe this is part of the problem. I have been using Norton Antivirus for system protection but the scans yield nothing but a tracking cookie, which I remove. I have computer install Vista updates automatically, but some do fail to install, and my HP printer software is not working properly. This is all I can report. Thank you for any assistance or advice! Below is my DDS.txt report.
