For several days my computer has had a life of its own....

The google feature redirects me to shopping sites, yellow.com and porn (just for fun)

I have been running steps provided by another technology forum (techspot) I'm on step 7 of 8 and the Hijackthis program is giving me this error

Error Details:

An unexpected error has occurred at procedure: modMain_FixUNIXHostsFile()
Error #75 - Path/File access error

Windows version: Windows NT 5.01.2600
MSIE version: 7.0.5730.11
HijackThis version: 2.0.2

I am not tech savvy and would appreciate any help.

log is several days old. I have pasted it below. If you still need help we will get a download to use:

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) to your desktop:


* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform FULL SCAN, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click **Remove Selected.**
*A restart may be required to finish the clean up process*
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt

please post the MBAM log in reply
