I'm new (in hours) to your forum and I hope you can help. It seems I have the virus that's being discussed a lot today. I get about:blank as my homepage. I get a bunch of pop-ups that google can't block. And every time Spybot or Mcafee cleans, these come back. And Mcafee keeps showing that it's cleaning .exe files every time I open IE. That said, I'm reading about the "Hijack-this" program but I can't find anywhere that explains how to download it. Is there a link on this forum that I'm missing? Not that I would know what to do once I got it but it seems to be where everyone is starting. I'm not really technical....but I'm willing to learn...can someone please help me get my smooth running/no pop-up computer back?!? Thanks
