    When I click on a link on some web pages I get a page that says "web page expired" "check internet settings". This is starting to drive me crazy because it keeps effecting more and more web sites that I visit so now I can't seem to get anywhere. Please tell me how to fix this, as I am getting increasingly frustrated and I'm going bald from pulling my hair out!

    Thanks so much!
    Sincerely,

    LI5A6

    Sounds like your browser may have been hijacked. I would run anti spy-ware if I was you, it can be found on the security forum as a sticky.

    Also empty all you internet temp files and delete your cookies, maybe run your anti virus software as well.


    good luck

    HIJACK THIS:

    Download and copy hijackthis to its own folder , it makes backups so keeping them separate and available can be useful.

    Note the Spyware tools websites are very often under attack and so I have provided more than 1 location to download from:

    http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/
    http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/downloads.html
    http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/
    http://www.sherrylynn.us/privacypolicy

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”.
    Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad.
    Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.
    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING wait advice from one of the many security experts in this forum.
    I currently do not have the skill/competence to advise and poor advice can be far more damaging to your PC with this software.

    Please have patience and wait for an expert to provide further detailed advice

    I downloaded the HiJack This file from one of the links provided, but when I try to open it, click on it, Run it etc...nothing. It flashes quickly on the screen, but nothing opens up.

    Now what?

    Do you have Winzip or a program similar installed on the computer?

    Well, everything seems to be OK now. I never could open the HiJack This file, but what solved my problem was upgrading Internet Explorer. Once I downloaded the upgrade and then restarted my computer I didn't have that problem anymore. Thanks much for the suggestions.
