If you Guys on the other side of the 'pond' want to know a bit more about us --please go to our website at www.islandofhope.co.uk (or) maybe even try our new site at wwww.islandofhope.org.uk --Your visit may help bump up the site visits numbers—which maybe might help donations if favourably looks at by those with lots of $£money£$.
Do pigs really fly?
To the point--why am I here--well it’s because one of our desk top computers is having a "Tantrum" and is in a “Go-Slow” mode
When in "Google" --BTW in case you don't know it is actually a British invention/site----Yep! I am just kidding want to keep you all alert –it is late now.
Our main problem is; when in Google, we are constantly being redirected to somewhere we don't want to be.
Symantec Antivirus (always updated) sometime finds a Trogan.Gen2 (file name A0020418.dll -the name appears to change) which is then ‘auto’ deleted or quarantined. We frequently run Spybot S & D
I am no PC wizard, but have today changed the Host file in Windows (c:\windows\system\drivers\etc\host).It was replaced with the original host file comprising of just one line “127.0.0.0 local host" No change--still being redirected.
I have deleted browsing history using the Window Tools and also used Spybot S &D Advance/Tools/ to delete History & Temp Files ----no change --still being redirected
We have the following:-
LAN -cable based
The File Server --runs on Window Server 2003
The PC that is infected runs on XP Pro
There are two other PC running on XP Pro
A spare PC (hardly ever used) runs’ on Win2000
Two laptops on Win 7
We regularly update software
Recently downloaded RegClean Pro –but being a Brit --I find their sales technique a bit pushy --so it will be removed in just a mo’
