Hello all,

I am new to this so lets give this a try... :thumbsup:

I tried to download a video from a friends myspace about 3 to 4 weeks ago and since then I have had problems with my IE. Every time I search for something using Google or Yahoo or anything, I get redirected as soon as I try to click on any of the search results and IE is acting funny (slow) with the scroll of my mouse. I am thrown to pages like BTCar.com and monstermarketplace.com search engines that look like the search results that I was looking for, but I don't dare click on any of them for fear that I may download something else BAD. :flowers:

I downloaded the new IE7 and it doesn't seem to have helped at all. I have run adaware and Norton Antivirus and neither of them seem to pick anything up. I have uninstalled adaware and since then I haven't been able to reinstall it to try a newer more updated version because it keeps telling me that there is no disk in the drive.

I have read up on this a little bit, and have found a common thread between what everyone seems to be doing and I am going to download and install hijackthis.exe tonight and run that to get the output that everyone has been posting. I am also going to download and install fixwareout.exe and run that as well.

Can somebody help me with this PLEASE!!!!!! I am trying to avoid the call to Earthlink and the $99 they charge to clean things up.

Please let me know if I am on the right track to getting this cleaned up.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode.

Run an online scan with Bit Defender

Allow both programs to quarantine or remove whatever they find.
