hi seem to have been hijacked by 404dnserror and safetyhomepage. i have run several anti spyware progs such as adaware spybot spyware doctor and a couple of others but i cant seem to get rid of the internet explorer hijacker. when i open internet explorer i see my homepage address in the bar correct then it jumps to either click here or click here. how do i get rid of this does anybody have any ideas to help me please i am rather annoyed and angry by this.
my operating system is windows xp pro. i have got ewido, ad-aware se, spybot, spyware doctor, avg anti virus, panda antivirus, the cleaner, ccleaner, xoft spy. none of which can find or get rid of theis problem i am having
i only have one antivirus running i ran panda as an extra to try and get rid of this thing. i have tried all the advice you have come up with allready as i have been at this all day and found some ideas on other forums from searching but none of which have worked yet
i downloaded the smitfraudfix but when i clcik on it it always says the process file is missing but it is in the directory and is not missing at all. i have posted my log file from hijack this but no responses as yet
dazzlet2004 hi Go into C:\Program files and have a look at the various folders.See if you find anything unusual. If you do then try to Uninstall them from within Control Panel_Add/Remove Programs.
Also try Start->Run->type in 'msconfig'(without " ' ")->click Startup tab. Have a look at what programs are set to run at startup. If you see anything very unusual un-tick it ,then later try and see if it will uninstall,as above.
Hopefully the name of the malware will stare you straight in the face. Good luck.
