I mainly use Firefox as my personal browser of choice, but my family and the random who-evers seem more comfortable with Internet Explorer so both are used frequently and both seem to be infected or at least affected by this hijacker
As I am only one of many people who use this computer I unfortunately cannot say exactly when this problem started, nor do I have any idea how it started.
I am currently running Windows XP home edition version 2002 service pack 3.
Steps I've taken: Ran Avira Anti-virus, Malware Bytes Anti-malware, Spybot search and destroy, CCleaner. (to seemingly no effect), Restarted in safe mode and re-ran them (to seemingly no effect)
My current computer protective programs still seem to be working fine and they have handled all my problems in the past but they simply don't recognize or remove whatever has hijacked my browser. =(
Seeing the popularity and heavy usage of HijackThis in these forums I downloaded it, took one good look at it and realized I don't know jack about it, will attempt to post a log upon request.
Is there some simple solution to removing what I suspect to be a browser hijacker? and if not Can someone walk me through it? Hijack this log can be posted on request (and possible explanation)
EDIT: Moved from XP forum to more appropriate Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.
