Lately, I have not been able to search for websites on the internet. More specifically, I can search for a topic but when I choose a site to go to I am always redirected to places like "monstermarketplace" or even "eBay rover?".....When this happens the task bar at the bottom of the page starts out showing the website I want but then shows the word "jump" and I am redirected to one of these unwanted sites. I run SpyBot and Norton and keep them both up to date and run them daily but nothing is ever found except for the occasional tracking cookie and once in a rare while "trojan.Zlob" which is immediately removed. I have tried to downlaod Hijack this but when I try to run it I recieve a warning message stating Im missing a certain .dll file (msvdvm or something like that), to make it more confusing , if I search for the dll file it IS on my computer. I hope this isnt too confusing and I have stated my problem clearly. Does anyone have a good site to downlaod Hijack this from?...Or possibly can someone email me the program?...Or do I even need it?...Please help! This is so frustrating. Thanks

Some infections deliberately prevent HijackThis from running. A way around this is to rename the HijackThis file to something else, such as HomerSimpson.exe and then run it. If you do post a HijackThis log be sure to put it in the correct forum.

If when trying to run HijackThis, you receive an 'Unexpected error' that says "A required .DLL file, MSVBVM60.DLL, was not found", please download the Microsoft Visual Basic 6 runtime files located here.
