Problem with Browser Hi jack AOL broadband gold

  FatboySlim71 10:31 14 Aug 2004

I have AOL 9 Broadband gold and Windows XP,The problem I have been having ever since getting broadband is that when im surfing I will be on a web site and the name of that web site will be in the place where you enter the web site address,the next thing is that changes to a different address and another window opens which contains the unwanted adverts,I have only had this problem since getting broadband.I have the free Mcafee firewall which you can download with broadband gold,I also run Spybot search and destroy and Adaware SE daily but when these programs find any adware the next time I surf the same thing happens.

You might want to consider using Mozilla as your default browser.

I have already tried coolwebshredder earlier but I was still getting my browser hi jacked,and when I ran Coolwebshredder it said my system was clean.Have you got to have Internet Explorer as your internet browser for these programs to work,as I am using AOL 9 as my browser.I can be surfing and a window will be open and the name of that web site will be in the place where you enter the web address towards the top of the page then that will change to another address and another window will open behind the one I already have open with an advert,curzor gismo or dating or max theatre or several other ones.Anyone suggest anything that maybe of help thanks.
