A mate down the road thought he had been hijacked, so when I went there last night I found two rouge dialiers which where titled something like XXX and loads of spyware, got rid of it all, but now when you open up ie there is a web page titled xxx and you can't visit any other site! The comp just keeps crashing and is really slow, have installed za, avg, ad aware, spybot, spywareblaster, ms antispyware and regseeker for him and cleaned loads of stuff out, but still computer is like a snail and ie won't go further than the xxx site. Any ideas?

the site can not be accessed so how do they do that?

I'm going around there now, will have a go and post a log if possible, she has BT BB 2.2Mb too, so if everything is OK, it should be posted in the next 10mins, thanks for the help so far, report back soon.

I see what you mean wasn't thinkin, you can save the logfile to disk and then use another pc to post it of course you will need to make sure that you scan the disk for infections.
