Howdy.

I downloaded a file sharing prog (Warez), hated it got rid of all the spyware et al but since then I've had my browser hijacked by a 'StartNow' type program which redirects my browser to a search site.. The address is nav.startnow.com

How do I give this the flick.

Thanking You

Download the following programmes:

1.Hijack this
2.Spybot &
3.Adaware


Update programs 2 & 3, then run the programmes, have them fix anything they find.

When you have run and fixed everything with Spybot Search and Destroy and AdAware, please reboot before scanning, as not everything can be removed when Windows is running

When you have done all that, launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log

This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

open that file
Go to Edit | Select all
Now click Edit | copy to copy it

Do not change anything just yet
Come back to the forum, Right Click and paste its contents here

Someone will come along and have a look at it, and advise you what still needs to be removed

Sometimes this sort of thing can some up in the registry. It might just be worth a quick search to see if you can find anything in there.
