My WinPatrol program has detected a change to my IE Search Page (I don't even use IE). This alert window comes up AFTER I successfully rid my computer of "IEPlugin" with the Symantec IE Plugin Removal Tool (in safe mode). Now, after rebooting I get this alert box from WinPatrol, and I honestly don't know whether to click on the YES or the NO box. I've been clicking on the "NO" box, but the same window keeps coming up. Here's what it says:
A change has been detected in your Internet Explorer Search Page.
Your new page is www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch
If this is ok, then click Yes or press Enter,
Click No or press Esc and we'll restore your page to
I've clicked on the "No" button maybe 6 or 7 times, but the same window keeps coming up. Should I be clicking on the "Yes", or is there a major problem here? I haven't had much experience with this type of situation, so sure would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks in advance.
I'm running Win XP Home w/SP 2. My Spysweeper is what detected the plug in last night, and asked me if I wanted to quarantine it. I said "Yes". This morning I Googled this plug in and decided to use Symantec's IE Plug in removal tool. It only removed part of it, so I had to re-do it in Safe Mode as it suggested.
