IE (v6.0) is being hijacked to go to:
http:// www .amaena. com /securityworm5/ ?aid=mosb5000&lid=intl&j=1&b=2&h=10

-ran Windows Defender - no probs reported
-checked the Add/Remove programs for anything sus.. nothing
-run the Microsft VM removal tool (unmsjvm.exe) - found that it wasn't installed anyway
-removed all java instances (I had update 6 as well as 7), then rebooted and installed 7 (latest)
-run VundoFix V5.1.2 - no infections found
-I've looked for files that I've seen posted elsewhere to do with amaena and not found them.

Please, what have I missed? It's not as simple as "stop using IE and switch to Firefox", as I have to use both in my job.

Thanks in advance if you can help or advise

Run Ewido!

# IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while Ewido is scanning as it may interfere with the scanning process:
# Launch Ewido Anti-spyware by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.
# Select the "Scanner" icon at the top and then the "Scan" tab then click on "Complete System Scan".
# Ewido will now begin the scanning process. Be patient this may take a little time.
Once the scan is complete do the following:
# If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
# Next select the "Reports" icon at the top.
# Select the "Save report as" button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).
# Close Ewido and reboot your system back into Normal Mode.

reboot to normal mode and run a few online scans!

Make sure your ActiveX controls are set as follows:

Go to Internet Options - Security - Internet, press 'default level', then OK.
Now press "Custom Level."

In the ActiveX section, set the first two options (Download signed and
unsigned ActiveX controls) to 'prompt', and 'Initialize and Script ActiveX
controls not marked as safe" to 'disable'.

Active X settings

Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it.
Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you
can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!
