Hi everyone, can anybody help me? I have recently changed my hard drive and on replacing all the software I find I have a problem. When I turn the machine on, it fires up nicely but after tha desktop has loaded Internet Explorer starts up (I have cable connection)showing a Yahoo search page but with the title 'jor.biz'. I have run both spy bot and adaware but both have failed to find it.The only difference is that Norton AV had run out and I loaded AVG Free. Is this a sponsor's page to support the free package or do I have a bit of malware that I can't track down.
AVG Free is not a sponsored or ad-added service. I suggest you get hold of CrapCleaner and run that. HiJack this can also help (but your have to know what you are doing). Also, a Reg cleaner - RegSeeker's pretty okay. All these will help show you what is running.
I would suggest you run hijack-this and post it on this site so that the experts can read it. I had Yahoo for a while, but I eventually got rid of it.
Also, your Norton might have run out anyway. I never use Norton. It is a fundamentally irritating utility that is best consigned to the deepest part of Dante's hell.
Try and get proper protection. AVG has now been branded as the best anti-virus tool. And it is free.
