Internet explorer hijacked

  Bike-it 13:51 15 Apr 2007

I am using windows XP which I think that my Internet Explorer 7 has been ‘HIJACKED’ as whilst I am trying to ‘surf the net’ I am bombarded with web pages that I have not asked for. These are mostly from financial companies offering loans ). It is now almost impossible to read the pages I want as I am inundated with this annoying junk.
I have thoroughly scanned my system with AVG antivirus AVG antispyware Adaware and SPYBOT they have all found things apart from AVG antivirus. As suggusted in another thread that you try scanning in safe mode so i done this but i am still being bombarded with web pages i have not asked for can someone suggest anything else please.

try using firefox for the interim
click here
its ok to have more than one browser
also try a scan with superantispyware
download the free trial proffessional version,you can revert back to free one after trial

Theres an option in ie 7 to reset it,also to disable addons,i dont use ie7 so maybe someone else could advise if that would cure it

another good free program is spywareblaster you can download from
click here once downloaded immunize against the threats

P;3 what is a squared programme ?

  provider 2 16:27 15 Apr 2007

I think the best way forward is to identify the infection first, if you can.

However, just in case it`s this one, you might want to give this a try: click here
