I have been infected by this swapx home page. It keeps adding porn sites to my favourites. Have tried running free AVG but to no avail, likewise deleting it from system32, with a pal who knows a bit more tahn me. Can anyone provide a step by step guide for the layman on how to get rid of this? I want my google back!

Hi


Download the latest version of HijackThis!: Download here HJT 1.98.2. Save it on your Desktop. You will need now to unzip hijackthis.exe to a permanent folder, such as c:\hjt . This has to be done as HijackThis creates backups. You may need to use these backups.

First create a new folder:
A. Click My Computer icon on your desktop
B. Click C: drive
C. Click the File menu --> New --> Folder, a folder "New folder" will be created.
D. Rename it HJT

Unzip hijackthis.exe to the c:\HJT folder.

Run HijackThis.exe Press the Scan button, then Save Log.
Notepad will open.

In Notepad click
Edit menu --> Select All
then
Edit menu --> Copy
