PLease can anyone help with my problem.

I regularly use Google to search and today when I tried to use it all I get is advertising for unsuitable websites whatever I put in as a search, also I cannot use my google toolbar, or eany of the other links like images advanced searches etc. I have run ad aware and spybot which has thrown up a few things.

Any suggestinos greatfully received as I am desperate for some searches and really like google.

Many Thanks

If you have Windows XP 0r 2000 look for this file


In earlier versions of Windows it would be


It does not have a file extension like .txt, .doc ans so on.

If you have this file, rename it (to hosts.old or whatever you like) then restart your PC.

If that does not work try CWShredder click here
