    Your browser has been "hijacked", by spyware probably.

    A lot of the members here are more familiar with "HijackThis" and "SUPERspyware remover", two pieces of software one of which will probably remove your malware, than I am, so I expect they'll guide you in the use of these. They'll probably ask you to run the software and then post the logs.

    In the meantime, you can do a Google search on "Mgrs.exe", and you will probably get a bunch of hits that will tell you what it actually is. Some links on that search might even lead you to a removal procedure.

    Hey salcano,

    Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, Dude. DON'T DELETE ANYTHING IN YOUR REGISTRY 'TILL YOU MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR REGISTRY.

    In fact, DON'T do anything with your registry unless it's specific advice given by one of the folks here on this board that are "authorized to help remove malware". To see if they are, just look for the little gold shield icon beside their screen name.

    I'm NOT one of those folks. And I never said anything about "deleting" anything.

    Sorry if this seems a bit rude in tone, but you put a scare into me when I saw that you were considering deleting something in your registry.

    That may be what you'll end up doing WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF THOSE GOLD SHIELD MALWARE REMOVING HELPERS I JUST SPOKE OF, but wait until you hear from one of them before you start deleting stuff.
