I turned off system restore, and hit F8 repeatedly and nothing happened. I hit it pretty good without entirely lacing in to it. Please help.
I'm reposting this topic for RickW but I've removed the links he provided to various Winfixer sites..NOT a good idea..His fix may be a good idea but the bad links were removed.
Hope this helps.

While using internet explorer I would be sent to a strange page. Here is what I did:
Step 1: Dump Restore points, click Start, control panel, double-click System, select the System Restore
tab, check ''Turn off System Restore on all drives.'' Click Apply and OK.
Step 2: Restart your computer in Safe Mode by repeatedly pressing the F8 key, select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER, select operating system and press ENTER, when it askes if you want your Windows to run in safe mode, click Yes.
Step 3: Open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, and then click Manage Add-ons, click the name of the add-on and click Disable.
If you can't access Internet Explorer, click Start, double-click Internet Options, on Programs tab, click Manage Add-ons, click the name of the add-on, click Disable.
Step 4: Restart Windows in its normal mode. Click Start, control panel, double-click System, select the System Restore tab, remove the check, click apply and OK.
Your problem should be over.
