hi all, mt browser has been hijacked by a link to click here or something like that. however it has latched onto internet explorer and browser hijack blaster has not noticed it?? it has left a icon on my desktop to the url or similiar above. the icon is blue with an orange x in it and is called ww15. any ideas on how to get rid folks?

Probably the best way to get rid of hi-jackers is to download and run "HijackThis" click here and post the log file. I'm not sure if PCA allow HJT log files or if they'll display properly on this forum, though, hinchie Y2K III.

Put HJT.exe into a folder on it's own, hinchie Y2K III, that will keep all it's backup and log files in that folder rather than all over your desktop. I don't recognise the file "wict.exe" but if you recognise it then leave it.

Now press Ctrl, Alt and Delete to bring up the Task manager, click the Processes tab and end the Process on the "wict.exe" (if you don't recognise it) and "vxyxxjg.exe" files. Then search for and delete those two files (or move them to a another folder as a backup, just in case).

Then run HJT again (from it's new folder) and tick these entries in HJT, then close all browser windows (that's important) and click the "Fixed Checked" button in HJT.

I don't see a hijacker as such, your hijacker software must have dealt with it. To get rid of the desktop icon, try deleting it from Safe Mode.
