Help. My internet explorer is bugged with something that keeps taking my home page that I enter under the tools section and takes it to a fake looking MSN windows home page with the address

res//pjyez.dll/index.html#12802

I have scanned the entire computer for virus under Norton antiviris and I bought a spyware program and the thing still hijacks the system

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip

or here:

http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.
