Hi - and help!

Using XP Pro V5.1 and IE 6.2600.

I've picked up some adware but can't find it. The results are that when Googling anything, I'm immediately redirected to a series of different commercial sites that are promoting casinos and adult websites, with exit consoles and pop-ups. The same thing happens if I try to access any of my favourites/bookmarks.

Keying the URL direct into the address line at the top of Explorer is fine, but to all extents and purposes IE is unusable at the moment.

I've cleaned and scanned it with everything you recommend and have got the latest Hijackthis. I'm new to the board, so i'll wait to hear fome someone before I post any logs!

Cheers!

Rob
