Hi guys,

I am currently experiencing a problem regarding IE. for some reason, my homepage for IE is now //www.syssecuritysite.com and will not change to anything else that I specify :thumbsup: . Now everytime I open IE I am presented with //www.syssecuritysite.com/ and a pop-up warning about W32.Myzor.FK@yf.

I tried running spyware programs to solve this problem but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Might have found a solution ... I downloaded a trail version of "Trojan Remover" and somehow the //Http://www.syssecuritysite.com/] no longer appears :thumbsup: But, I noticed that the program only 'renames' the infected files ... ( like changing .exe to .ex$) ... would this be a problem ??? :flowers:

Hi machix
There seems to be a lot of this 'syssecuritysite' about at the moment. Although you may think it's gone from your system.... you have to be sure.
The best thing to do would be to post a hjt log into the hjt forum and let one of the experts look at your log to determine whether or not you are clean.
If you need a link to the the hjt download and the forum, click here....Preparation guide before posting a hjt log
Once the link opens, scroll down and you will see the download link for hjt.... followed by the instructions.

If you have not already posted a hijackthis log, then you may want to try this first.

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download, install and update Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0. DO NOT perform a scan yet..
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Go here and follow the instructions for using SmitfraudFix. Read "How to create/extract a ZIP File in Win ME/XP/2003" or "How to create/extract a ZIP File in Win 9x/2000" if your not sure how to do this.

After using the tool reboot again in "SAFE MODE" and Clean out your Temporary Internet files as follows:
  • Quit Internet Explorer and quit any instances of Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click "Delete Files" under Temporary Internet Files.
  • In the Delete Files dialog box, tick the "Delete all offline content check box", and then click "OK".
  • On the General tab, click "Delete Cookies" under Temporary Internet Files, and then click "OK".
  • Click on the Programs tab then click the Reset Web Settings button. Click "Apply" then "OK".
  • Click "OK".
Next Click Start, click Control Panel and then double-click Display. Click on the Desktop tab, then click the Customize Desktop button. Click on the Web tab. Under Web Pages you should see a checked entry called Security info or something similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the Delete button. Click "Ok" then "Apply" and "Ok".

Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin.

Then scan with Ewido per the instructions you printed out and reboot back to normal mode.
