This is my first post. I am new, but I have been reading posts, answers and tutorials and I haven't found anything on my problem--exactly. I am using windows ME and I have Norton Antivirus and Internet Security. I try and keep everything updated, I use Spybot and Adware. It seems to me that there is "something" in my PC though nothing is ever found in scans etc. Everytime that I connect through IE, a web page for a commercial entity pops up behind the page I am using. Over time it has been 3 different sites. I finally decided to try putting it on my "parental control list" and lo and behold I no longer receive it,..but rather a notice from Norton that it has been blocked. This is why I say that it must be coming from my computer rather than from outside in... Am I wrong? Norton claims that it must be a corrupted IE and I should reinstall it, but I have a hard time understanding that logic. I would dearly appreciate other ideas. :thumbsup:

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.
