Browser hijack?

  jake2 20:15 20 Feb 2008

Last night I noticed my browser (IE7) opening up another tab as soon as my usual home page has oopened. So far I have had "horny matches" and "no holds poker" appearing unannounced!
I have tried running spybot, and ad aware so far nothing comes up. I am running zonealarm spyware scanner as I type this but I dont really expect it to find anything.
How do I get rid of this?

Ok downloading it now, I'll give it a try.

Try VoG™,s link but update first and run in safemode.

If this fails you,try these

Smitfraudfix click here

click here

Read the tutorials first !!

Having Smitfraud on the computer may result in your Antivirus picking this up and notifying you its a trojan.....its not,its a false positive !

Once the programs have been run,download and run the ATF cleaner from the Vundofix weblink above.

If still no joy,post back.

Ok a quick update. None of the spyware scanners or anti virus detected anything just on th eoffchance I checked the "add remove programs" list to clear out any rubbish and there was a program on there I didn't recognise "ad" something or other (I should've taken a note of the name, sorry)I removed that and ran ccleaner and all is well.
Thanks for all the help and advice.
