Hi, My homepage has been hijacked by something calling itself "fastsearch". I continue to alter my hompage back to my isp`s homepage, but every time I reload internet explorer "Fastsearch" returns. Any solution folks? Regards, Greywolf.
There must be a program on your computer called fastsearch. Go to search ask it. and that should tell you where it is. If so, now delete it. OR go into control panel .. add & remove programs..see if the program is there if so delete it. now should be OK !!
Hello all, Thanks for the help. I installed Spybot, updated its software, ran it and it seems to have had some effect. "fastsearch" no longer loads, but Internet Explorer now, occasionally, defaults to something called "webcounter". The browser window is blank though. Any ideas? Could this be a residual issue and no real threat? Regards, Greywolf
Regarding the above,I was optimistic. Fastsearch has returned. However, after I have run spybot, "fastsearch" vanishes and is replaced by "webcounter" in the address but internet explorer is now blank. It seems "spybot" is doing something to alter things but not removing the "hijacker" totally. Greywolf
