Does anyone out there know hopw to get rid of my problem. The other day I suddenly found that i was unable to open the secure p[ages when I went on to a few of my sites i.e Internet banking, hotmail, Friends reunited, e-music.etc.
What was happening is that I was able to access the site but when I put in the password and pressed OK or Go I got a message " Cannot find server" and was taken to a Search page.
I have run Adaware and my AVG asnti-virus but it does not seem to solve the problem.
Regardless of what you do to solve your immediate problem, you need to install a real-time antimalware application like (free)Microsoft Antispyware Beta (assuming that you have not done this already). AVG is a good antivirus but does not protect against spyware and adware etc.. Ad-aware is also a fine prog but unless you've got the paid for version, it doesn't offer real-time protection. It's useful to 'lock' your home page which many of the free antimalware (real-time or not) applications allow you to do. This will prevent a hijack from recurring if that is what has indeed happened in this case. Browse safely, it's a dangerous virtual world out there! :-)
