Hijack vendetta

  maddison 19:04 07 Mar 2005


I am in a vendetta with a browser hijacker. I am running XP, which is an upgraded to my win 98 pentium III PC.
I am on broadband with wanadoo but I ca no longer browse the net as it keeps opening up the same page 'click here'.

I have ran Hijack this, Spybot, CWshredder, adaware and got nowhere. I have identified two files on the hijack lod which I have deleted but the keep resetting themselves. I have switched off system restore.

The funny thing is that I sometimes get around 4 mins on the wanadoo page before it jumps to the page above. Also my home page has not al;tered anywhere?

A long shot try deleting said files in safe mode

As great1 has said. Run the hijackthis fix in safe mode. Only this afternoon I got rid of a browser hijack that way, after a couple of goes in normal mode did not succeed. AVG spotted it, but only temporarily got rid. Spybot, Adaware and A squared all saw nothing.

Hijackthis in safe mode did the trick.
