    Hello -

    My computer seems to have picked up a new bug and I wonder if anyone else has seen this or knows how to get rid of it. For about the past week, I've noticed that after browsing for a while, I'll note that the URL in my address bar is from some website I visited a few minutes back. It's not a URL of one site in particular, just a random site visited in the last few minutes of browsing that seems to have become "sticky" and remained there. It doesn't seem to affect my browsing or make my browser go back to the site. It's just that the URL in that bar doesn't ever change to anything else after that despite everywhere else I continue to browse. I run Spyware S&D, AdAware, and Norton AntiVirus. None of those has gotten rid of whatever this is. Anyone else seen this yet and know what to do with it? Thanks!

    Go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/downloads.htm and download 'Hijack This!'.

    First make a folder on your computer in my documents called Hijackthis and then Unzip it to that folder.
    Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.

    Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
    Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here
    in a reply.
    It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
    so do NOT fix anything yet.

    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.
