I have a problem with a user where their home page keeps changing (graphicpipeline.com, securityresponse.symantec.com, messengersite.net, virushelpzone.com). I downloaded Hijack This and tried to run it but it keeps disappearing. Usually it disappears just a few seconds after displaying the box with the buttons, sometimes a few seconds into scanning.

I tried searching these forums for this problem and can't find a matching solution. Is this a known problem?

Thanks!

Welcome to Bleeping Computer msgsu :thumbsup:

Have you tried running it in Safe Mode,what happens.

Reboot your computer into SAFE MODE" using the F8 method.
To do this,restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly.
A menu will appear with several options.
Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

I am familiar with Safe Mode. I will try that when the user's computer is next available!
