I have my friends PC hear,he cannot get the microsoft site or the AGV site and other sites re-rout to other sites of similar goods. He has no antivirus on at the moment he had AGV Free but it was removed, Any Ideas.
I think it is infected but I cannot get many of these sites. I Have just downloaded Ccleaner and will run this. Ans just managed to get microsoft if I type in the full address other wise it goes to odd surch sites. I will keep trying
a system reboot = switching off the pc and then restarting it. If you can't switch off any other way then just hold the power button on the tower in for about 5 secs What state is the pc in when you restart (reboot) it What happens, any error messages?
Try a system restore to a previous date by tapping F8 (or F5) continually after you switch the pc on. You should get a menu (white writing on a black background) choose 'Last known Good' and see if that works OR reboot again and choose 'Safe Mode' at the top and then for user 'Adminstrator' and then click on 'No' to access the System Restore dates and pick a date
Lotvic Thanks for that F8 did the trick driver back where it should be. Any Idea where this bit of software would be that is directing so many sites to its owm webb sites, It seems to have taken over the serch engins and all the anti virus sites, directing all the time to download some unknown windows fixes?
