Due to a system crasch(not because of this problem) and a complete operating system reinstall, I have been reinstalling all or most of all my disked applications. As the days have gone by I have been remembering some, hopefully all, the applications I have downloaded from the Web over the years. Well, I was downloading what I thought was a Winmx 2.6 setup. NOT! I ended up downloading Netwebsearch. Knowing that I had not installed Winmx, I deleted it from my ADD/Remove Programs as well as anything in the File Find under the name it was hidden in(winmx....). After doing this, I noticed I was getting a blank window who's name is netwebsearch. Well I was able to set my pop-up blocker to handle it's constant intrusion. I also noticed at times I was not able to close or open IE without using Control/Alt./DEl first. When I did this there was 2-3 IE's open at one time. I believe I've been hijacked! This is a first for me. I'd like to get my hands on this person. Anyway, I ran Spybot, Ad-aware, Norton Virus Scan, Micro Trend's House Call(from their website. There were a few things but everytime I opened IE it would still have a flash of this netwebsearch window before my pop-up blocker would close the window. My pop-up blocker which came with HISTORY KILL2003 has now been disabled. Probably due to netwebsearch. I'm going to have to reinstall History Kill after I can hopefully remove netwebsearch. It also wouldn't let me seasrch for any info on how to remove this piece of s--t!
After what happened with my hard drive crash a week ago, I'm pretty mad.
Please, Please help!
I need some help figuring out what to do.
I have moved this to the more appropriate Forum. ~Scarlett
