My Home & Search pages hijacked.

by Ron5x / February 28, 2004 8:43 AM PST

I've included a logfile down when first rebooting, showing I think a more accurate description of the cuprit files. The msplus thing was installed opting out of the companion add-od and hasn't caused me issues like this & I've used it since way before it was included in the install. (about 2 yrs maybe)
Thanks again
Ron

Ron,
I am NOT an "Expert" on Hijackthis !!

But what I see is:

Is http://charter.msn.com your homepage??

Ron, thanks for posting the HijackThis log. I am unfamiliar with these logs and see that Marianna has included some items in her reply... I do not know what to make of those. Like you I have used this software for years and never had any problems that I know about nor have I ever accepted the optional sponsor feature. If you learn more or have something conclusive, I sure would like to know about it.

Thanks again,

Happy

Glenn

Yes, Charter.msn.com is the preferred home page and google toolbar is present and I'd prefer google to be the default (if I have a choice.) ;^)

Ron,

what I would do is,

check the items I mentioned in my post above - close all windows except HijackThis - and click on FIX checked.

After that maybe you post again??
