My homepage in both IE7 and Firefox was changed from www.google.com to www.google.es. In IE7 under Tools>Internet Options>General, the homepage is set to www.google.com. The Google page is in Spanish. I was able to make a couple of "lucky guess" changes in Google preferences to get an English display but the homepage still resolved to www.google.es. Then I noticed a link on the Google page in the 2nd line under the search window that read "Go to Google.com". Clicking this link took me to www.google.com. That link was replaced with "Go to Google Expana". I have a home network with 4 desktops and a tablet. The hijack affected all 5 PCs. In fact, it made the same change on my son's iPod Touch.
I have run the following with nothing found: Microsoft Live OneCare, Norton's Symantec, Spybot S&D, Hijack This. This was my first run of Hijack This and have only saved the results and reviewed them myself for anything suspicious. I did run one other download (of which I unfortunately lost track) which listed an instance of Trojan.cws.
What should I do from here?
