My browser has been hijacked and keeps getting redirected to updatesearches.com.

Microsoft Anti SpyWare idenitifies the hujack but does not seem to be able to remove it.

Anyone seen this before or could maybe point me in the right direction to fix this?

Your help is appriciated.

By the way Adware does not even identify this issue.

It seems your browser has been hijacked as well. If you search through the Spyware/Browser hijack forums you should find some information in there to fix it and some instructions as well.

Hello amlego and steveat123 and welcome to BC.

I would suggest that you both need to post a log in our HiJack This forum and let our team guide you through the removal of your problems. See How to submit a Hijackthis Log for instructions.
