Hijacked web pages

  beardie 13:48 02 Jan 2010

I am experiency a problem with web pages opening other than the ones i ask for. In google search if I click to open a page, some times something completely different opens, pages telling me the computer is insecure and offering to sell anti-virus, porn channels etc..
I have scanned with spybot and malwarebyte and am also running norton internet security, but still they come up.
Vista operating system.
Any suggestions please

Update Malwarebytes and run it in safe mode.

If none of your security programs work download and run this one.

click here

It is a pay for program but you get a 30 day trial and it will remove anything that it finds.It may ask you for payment ignore that and carry on with the scan.

click here
update and then run superantispyware the other runs in the backgound.

Just wondering if you have downloaded Messenger Plus lately.If you check add remove it will show up there.
Anyhow lets hope Trojan Remover sorts it our for you.
