Hi all.

When I go to open my hotmail inbox from messenger, a webpage opens with an Active content blocked and the following error:

You will now be redirected to the site you desired. If this is not the case please click (button- here).

I click the button or allow the blocked content and the page loads up fine...just ontop of whatever page I had open in another window. This redirect page has the following URL:

C:\Documents and Settings\Home\Local Settings\Temp\spng_redir.html

Using AdAware and Spybot, I removed the few problems it found (180search assistant)

I am running windows XP and I have the msgplus patch on my msn messenger (just incase anybody knows if it is to do with this)

I have included a HijackThis log below:

I'm not really an expert so if there is anyone out there with any help, it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you all in advance, and I'm happy to give extra information. Thanks.

Your log is clean so this is definitely not a security issue. It sounds like a problem with Messenger Plus which I don't know anything about. Messenger Plus is an app that I wouldn't have because of their affiliation with LOP. I would personally recommend that you uninstall it. It is my opinion that any app that sees fit to bundle that kind of scumware with their software should be boycotted. See here for more info.

Perfect, its back to normal. The msgplus software must be dodgy, I'm not going anywhere near it again...not worth the time. Problem solved.
