Hello to you all

I thought these things were time saving items!! finally got it working with new virus software, and every time I enter my broadband connection SPYWAREDOCTOR(SWD) says " Potential DNS(s) hacker stopped"
I have check sight guide in the SWD and it is coming from 85.255.112.5

1) Is this a serious problem?
2) Can I stop it?
3) How?

Thanks for any help!

Hi there

I believe you have a Wareout infection, or as it is know no as UnSpyPC.

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. I bet you are wondering what HijackThis is. Well it's a program that is simply able to show others what's going on inside your computer, in terms of infection etc..

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.

David
