I've got an old laptop that I usually sit around a surf on while watching T.V. and I do visit porn sites where I got JACKED. My Mozilla browser is fine but my Internet Explorer browser got Hijacked. I'm running ZOne alarm and Adwear 6.0 (free download version) but my browser still got Hijacked. I downloaded the most resent updates of Adwear and removed a bunch of "bugs" but my browser is still screwed up. I recently downloaded Search & Destroy and it removed some bugs but the browser is still screwed up.

Any suggestions?

Spybot always works good for me.

Another program to try is Adaware. It usually takes care of far more things than spybot does, but I like how spybot immunizes ones system. Use them in tandem for best effect.

Really, what browser do you think those bastards design their malicious code for the most, anyway?

IE, of course.

Ditch it.

I use Mozila most of the time but pictures don't look right so when I get the urge to skin surf I use IE.

If it is XP for OS, system restore to a previous point, and stay away from Russian porn sites.

What if I'm running Windows 98?

You are most likely going to have problems even getting Adware or SpyBot to run a scan and when you do it will reload the Problem.

read and follow this tutorial about removing malicious items from you computer including spyware, browser hijackers and all kinds of stuff. good luck and download the lsp fix programs here (this is from a link on the main page i sent you to, but want to make sure you get these programs) before you do your sweeps as sometimes your internet connection gets screwed up.

If you need it I can email you 2 attachments with highjack removal tools if you can not find them on the links I provided.

Spybot Search and Destroy does not have spyware.

Don't surf for porn (or anything really) while logged in via an account with uber god administrator powers.


Also I'm .....curious..... Which web sites look better in IE than Moz?

What is a "account with uber god administrator powers"???

For some reason any pictures on any porn site don't look right if I'm using Mozilla Firefox.

One that lets you wipe your harddrive, or delete everythign in C:\Windows

My day to day 'putering is done with what microsoft calles a 'limited account'.

As example. I try to format my hd, i get this..

C:\Documents and Settings\Me>format c:
Access denied.

C:\Documents and Settings\Me>
