For some reason this computer (Win2000) is having issues with Internet Explorer. I believe I have the latest available IE for Win2000 and all microsoft service packs and critical updates as well.

The issue is everytime I open IE I get the following in my address bar
"res://C:\WINNT\system32\shdoclc.dll/navcancl.htm"

Then when I hit the home button I get this
"http://www.404dns.com/"

and this
"The page you are looking for is blocked by the adware on your PC. Remove it with System Doctor software. CLICK HERE."
Also telling me to install System Doctor and automatically trying to download the software if I follow the directions it gives.

Here is the website it takes me to
http://systemdoctor.com/download/2006/inde...39460&ex=1&ax=1

I have not followed these directions as I beleive it is a scam.

Also no matter how I try to set the home page to anything at all - it always returns to "about:blank" I have manually changed the address to a friendly webpage, I have tried changing it from the properties of the desktop icon, I have tried setting it through the webpage scripts that say "make this your homepage" click here....nothing works and it is really annoying....

Help I am desparate to scatch this computer itch but just can't reach it..... :thumbsup:

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.
Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
