Hi all,

It looks like I have a hijacker that redirects searched google links to unrequested ad sites.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 and am running Win XP Pro, SP3. I have up to date McAfee definitions and have tried their Level 2 help along with the help from AT&T Level 2, which provides the McAfee, but both without success. I used Advanced System Care and Vundo fix and several other minor fix attempts. My teenaged son has also attempted other fixes.

In reading other's experiences, I ran Hijack This and was directed to post to a forum, but this forum says not to post my Analyze This results, so I'll follow protocol.

What would you suggest I do to eradicate this malware?

Thanks in advance for your time, help and assistance!
