    You have been browser hijacked- it´s not a virus but it is a problem that should be fixed.

    Anyway
    Try this onetime scanner from Kaspersky
    http://www.mwti.net/antivirus/free_utilities.asp

    Now we´ll use hijackthis to remove your controlled homepage and spyware.

    Download newest Hijackthis software and scan – save log – paste it here again.
    http://danborg.org/spy/HJT/hijackthis.exe
    One of the experts will tell you what to fix in the hijacklog and you´ll choose fix checked – then scan again. The program will automaticly create a backup each time you fix something but DON’T fix anything by yourself.

    Now you can post a log -

    Hi arn8d

    Welcome to TSG! :)

    I am assuming that you are still dealing with the same hijack you had in this other thread since no one ever helped you:

    http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?t=266654

    Based on that I suggest that you do the following:

    A new version of Hijack This has been released so get rid of the old one and Click here to download the new one, come back here and post the log from it.

    Also Click here to download getservice.zip and unzip it to your desktop. Open the Getservice folder and click on the getservices.bat file. A notepad will open up with a long list of Services. Please save that notepad file and attach it to your next reply to this thread. It will be easier to attach it rather than copy and paste because it will be too long to paste in one post.

    After you post the next Hijack This log and the getservice list, it is very important that you not restart your computer or attempt to do anything to remove this until I have posted the removal directions because the files and the entries in HJT will change and we will have to start all over again. It would be best that you do nothing at all with the computer until you get the directions.
