Twice in as many days, I have clicked on a ebay link from here in the general section-one for the fake airsoft Aimpoint and today for the link on the auction for the Japanese Samuri Armor....both times, after viewing the auction, when I return to my homepage, which is AT&T Worldnet, I get redirected to a Hong Kong porn site.

Then my 'puter gets infected with a Trojan Worm virus.....it over-writes your Internet Options and changes your home page to the HK porn site and keep installing the virus....

I'm running the old Win '98 and I have etrust EZ Anti-Virus....it catches it, but then I have to delete my Temp Internet files and scan the system.....

Has anyone else had that happen...?

that crap burns me up, my pc got hyjacked in a similar manner,
world finder was their choice of start page and web engine.
it took Mcafee 3 mos to figure out how to correct it, I still have an auto dialer that I cant get rid of.
minor irritation.
A POX upon the house of spammers and virus, worm, trojan writers.
I would like to see one of those basturds taken out and the street and shot in the head..
Like that German creep that it took the FBI to find

All I know is that both times I looked at the ebay links, and when I click on home on the tool bar, which was right after viewing them, my 'puter was infected....once, maybe, twice...no way

I spent a couple of hours on my boss's computer last week. That stuff is a bitch to clean up.

You need to do a google search for a program named "Hijack This" - it's the only way to get rid of the problem you are experiencing. Then, download and update Spybot S&D and after scanning and destroying immunize your computer against future infections.

Yup. Your end. I suspect that it has nothing to do with the above referenced links. You probably already have some spyware, or hijackware on your machine already.

Go to google, and search for "Adaware", and "Hijackthis". Run them. They should clean you up and you wont' have to worry about it anymore. Oh, and get some decent virus scanning software, and a software firewall.
