was downloading a file off of the internet and was hit by some sort of virus. I think the virus is ad.reduxmedia.com. Im not the best with computers and didn't understand what a hijack this log was so i didn't post one. Im not sure if this will help, but here is a description of what is happening: I open internet explorer and my homepage (yahoo) and a website named ad.reduxmedia.com show up in my history. Then, while browsing the internet, if i look at my history i find that several websites are in my history that no one in my family has visited. Even if i just leave my computer sitting at the yahoo home page, my history will slowly fill. I am almost positive that this is the virus. I hope someone out there can help me.

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

==>PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS<== unless a log is specifically requested.

Please describe the issues you are experiencing with your computer.

regards, Elise
