Help, my internet browser is infected!!!!

by kintonarmmer / May 9, 2004 2:12 PM PDT

I am using MS Internet Explorer on XP and everytime I use the internet and type in a web address or click on a link I get sent to the following web page:


I have run Ad-aware, Spybot and E-Trust EZ Anti-virus but the problem still remains. Even when I have tried to download new software to help with this problem, the download gets interupted and this same page pops up. I am open to any and all suggestions and if it's not too much trouble could you please email your response to kintonarmmer@hotmail.com in addition to your post on this board. I can check email from work, but may not be able to get to the message board again if this problem continues.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Hi there,

I recently cleared this for a customer and ran spybot and cwshredder to get rid of most of it, you also need to get shot of this file c:search.html look for it it will be there be sure to delete it. I did all of the above and somehow it still came back, so i uninstalled and reinstalled a copy of IE 6 and it seemed to do the trick!
