    Hi everyone,

    When I'm on a website and it has links some of the time when I click on them it appears that I'm being redirected to another site and when it does that it consistently tries to send me to this domain: http://www.anrdoezrs.net/ but the domain isn't valid and I just get a page not found error.

    I'm on a Dell XPS400 with XP Media Ed using IE 6.0.

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Look like some kind of browser hijacker/spyware issue.

    If you type www.anrdoezrs.net directly into a browser, it diverts you to:

    http://www.cj.com/qksrv.html

    This appears to be some kind of online advertising/marketing (read pop-up) company.

    Isn't that strange? When I click on either of those links in your post it just tells me the page cannot be displayed...

    Odd... maybe it's messed around with your hosts file? Try this http://64.70.54.78/

    This is the IP of the URL that it diverts me to...

    I was able to get to that one... so what does that mean? What should I do to fix it?

    You could try going into Internet Options, going to the advanced tab on the far right, UNCHECKING 'enable third party browser extensions', and RESTARTING your PC, then clear you browsers cache, but that isn't guaranteed to work, but does have results for basic (simply coded) browser hijackers....

    Scanning your system with ad-aware, spybot, etc.. may also work.

    Otherwise, I suggest downloading hijack this, and posting the results in the approriate forum... I'm no good with Hijack This logs yet...
