internet homepage being hijacked

  gazzer1999 22:10 14 Sep 2004

Hi could anyone help a pal of mine who when ever he connects to the web his home page keeps getting reset to a different page and when he is surfing he keeps getting redirected to the same page.He has managed to delete some files connected to this problem which allows him to surf for a while, but the next day all the files are back and he is back to square 1. His operating system is win 98, any help would be appreciated

Which page does he get redirected to?

Not sure if these programs run on win98 but you need to download, install, update and run the following programs.

Spybot S&D


Both are free and should sort out you friends PC
