    I have a browser hijacker that keeps changing my homepage to a site called "Search 123". I've run Adaware, Spybot S&D, CWS shredder and Norton Antivirus but it's still doing it. Can anyone help me?

    This is my hijack this log:

    Run HJT again and check:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Winhost] C:\WINNT\winh.exe

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


    Restart in safe mode Click here to see how


    Open My Computer. Go to Tools, Folder Options and click on the View tab. Make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". Now click "Apply to all folders"
    Click "Apply" then "OK"

    Now find these files and folders and delete them.

    C:\WINNT\winh.exe <-- file

    You need to upgrade both W2K and IE. Start with Win2k SP4 here:

    Go back to Windows Update and upgrade to Internet Explorer 6 Sp1

    Get all the other security patches at Windows Update.
