    Hey guys. This is the first time i've posted here. Starting a couple of days ago this site passthison.com has been forcing itself as my starup page for the web and it causes a bunch of pop-ups as well. Does anyone have any idea how I can get rid of this nuisance? Thanks a lot guys.

    Hi jkwings, and welcome to TSG.. :)

    Could you please download 'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
    When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

    This will give us a rundown of what’s going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Don’t fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

    I'm off on a trip to the zoo now, (y) :D so I won't be here to do this, but there's plenty of good people here who'll get rid of this and any other problems you may have.

    Cheers

    Liam

    Some consider this spyware - others don't - so this is optional

    You should also consider dumping Kazaa and using either Kazaalite or Winmx
