internet explorer being hijacked

  nickyjane 22:51 05 May 2005

Hi Guys.
Have had no end of problems with pop ups, over the past few weeks. Have just found the reason why, I think. My pop ups come from a couple of sites, namely , and msxpsupport. I only found this out my looking at explorer history after the pop ups appeared on screen.How do I stop explorer connecting to these sites. My os is XP home with sp1 also running are zonealarm,adaware,spybot,spyware blaster, avast and a2. Thanks

Have d/l MS Antispyware. It found a few things and removed them, but still getting pop ups from a site called I have now scanned with almost every sypware program known to mankind, but still can't stop this Searchchem site from loading by it's self.

You could try a System Restore to a date before you were infected. If that fails switch off System Restore and scan again. The problem may be hiding in there.

I am not Vog (!) but to post an HJ log you might need to do it in two (or more) parts, as this sight has an 800 word limit on postings.

Good luck!

Still can't sort out this HJ log yet will keep trying.While looking at my start up menu I came across this little beauty " power reg schedular mfc" which I think is a spyware program plus some others, I have found them in the registry is it safe to delete them from there.
