I followed the instructions for removing the highjacker which will not allow me to get onto the internet and keeps giving me the Internet explorer cannot display the website. At the bar on top it shows @about.securityrisk. It then says internet explorer cannot display the website.

When i typed that in my old computer it pulled up your site and i did what you recommended at www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-antivirus-vista-2010. I have windows 7

i downloaded FixExe.reg file and mbam-setup.exe to one of those plug in drivers then loaded them onto my new computer i got an erro that said MBAM-Erro-Updating(12007,0WomHttpSendRequest

i have no idea of what to do now.. Can you provide help as when i finished the scan, it found nothing but i get the same message when i try to get onto the internet

I am 64 years old and time is of the essence to me

Shouldnt microsoft sercurity essentials cause a highjacker and removed it? the securityatrisk problem that keeps me off the web with my new computer

Hello grandpahr,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
