Hi...
I have not been able to find out where this winfixer is coming from.
when i see the winfixer prompt i have locked the zone alarm and then clicked anywhwere on the winfixer
this causes the page not found error to come up and now when i look at task manager and click on go to process while on the error message ,, i find that i have two instances of iexlore running.. now i can click end process and it kills the window.... but that's as far as i have had any real success....


the other problem i have is when i do a search in the address bar or the search on msn home page ... i sometimes get a different search engine... quite a few differnet ones visually at least.... clicking on a address in a returned search quite often takes me somewhere else.. using the back button then forward takes me to where i want but is quite annoying.....

i ran all the programs as instructed and cleaned it up as best i could

thanks for your assistance....

Hello,

I see you don't have an antivirus installed. :thumbsup:
You really need one though, because only zonealarm won't protect you from viruses and other malware.

AVG, AntiVirŪ OR Avast are good FREE antivirus.
Never install more than one antivirusscanner or firewall on your system! Several together can give problems and decrease the reliability of it seriously!

Update your antivirus and let it perform a full scan and let it delete everything it is finding.

Reboot afterwards and post a new hijackthislog.
