Hi Folks,

Can anyone help please...

A few days ago I visited an MP3 site which opened about 20 pop-ups. Once I'd closed them all down, I thought that was the end of it BUT whenever I try to download a file (for example Acrobat reader or the latest IE6 patch) I get directed to click here instead of the download page.

I've searched the registry, and every file on my PC for "Fastwebfinder" and for "fastclicks" (which dsplays in the status bar when the page is loading) but can't find any references to either. I've also run a full disk scan with Norton AV which tells me I don't have any viruses on my PC.

I'm guessing that it's a Java script or similar that's running on my PC, but I can't find it. Has anyone else had a similar problem, and if so, how did they get rid of it?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried spyware remover, such as spybot S&D or Adaware? Do you use a download accelerator? Sometimes these can be 'highjacked' to a default website?
