Home Site Being Changed?


Recommended Posts

After ever day on the internet, i notice that my homepage will not stay the same for more then 24 hours. After this period a foreign site is made as my homepage. I know that there is some kind of trojan or something at work but i cannot delete it. Anyone have a program that is free to download? I already have Ad Aware 6.0, Trojan Hunter (but it only tells me if i have any on and will not delete because i am on the trial version) Spyware Blaster, and Search & Destroy. Is there another progam that will detect this file and delete it?

 

 

 

Thanks,

Newport

go to trendmicro house call. Its an online virus scanner and its free. It scans for all known viruses and trojans through an applet that downloads at the beginning and removes them from your system.

 

edit

 

spybots free version is their full version!

Actually this sounds like a homepage hijacker.....

 

ad aware and the like seem to miss them...

 

Hijack This seems to be the best for this....

 

 

 

Here is a link to download it..

Be careful though. Unlike Ad Aware, etc. do no delete everything it finds... look through the lists and delete the ickies!
