    My internet explorer has been hijacked by alot.dll, which is reported in the message information telling me that Internet explorer has run into trouble and needs to shut down.
    Running WinME, IE 6.0.
    So I am here again at your site begging for your support.
    Please help me again, I am all ears and at your command
    Thanx
    Joanne

    Hi, Welcome to TSG!!


    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    Run HJT again and put a check in the following:

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://my.alot.com/

    Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

    I don't see any anti-virus software running.
    Load AVG http://free.grisoft.com/freeweb.php/doc/2/ it's free. Run a full scan and post the AVG scan results with a new HJT log and let me know if you are having any problems.
