I have been dealing with a hyjacker for a couple of weeks. When i open up my browser and type in a search it does just that going to a list of the most likely sites. However at that point a box opens up saying Internet Explorer has stopped workin" followed by..."Checking for a solution to problem" then "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly windows will close the program and notifie you if a solution is available" .....Then up pops another tab saying ..."this tab has been recovered A problem with this web page caused Internet Explorer to close and re-open the tab".

After which the list of most likely sites vanishes an up comes always changing websites such as....."Questbooster.co......or....Allgive.com.....or Luckyresults.com..... or Searchfind.com

Here are some examples of a search for "Ugly Betty

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
