Ok, I'm not exactly sure about which spyware or viruses are causing these problems but here are my symptoms.

1. My IE explorer homepage keeps changing to www.ieuptodate.com
2.Many web sites are getting redirected to a page trying to get my to buy spyheal.
3.Many popups about security programs

I have tried the following programs to fix the problems:

1. Spybot S&D
2.Webroot Spy Sweeper
3.Xoftspy 4.22

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Download the current version of HijackThis from here and save it to a convenient location. This is a self-executing file, so just double-click the file and it will install itself in its own folder in Program Files.

After installing, open HijackThis and click "Do a system scan and save a logfile." After it has finished scanning, Notepad will open with the log.

Post back with the copy of the log.
