    So, I think my brother is playing a trick on me. He came over the other day and got on my computer for a minute. Now I dont know how to get rid of his joke.

    I recently made a Myspace.com and have been checking it every other day. Now when I type in www.myspace.com it redirects me to an adult site.( I know, he thinks hes a funny sucker)

    Can anyone please tell me where I can change this setting. I have loojked but have had no luck.

    Thanks in advance

    I left the room when he was on the computer.. When I come back it wont let me go to the site.... I am 99.9 % sure I was not hijacked. Its a setting somewhere in Windows I think or maybe a script... any ideas?

    Have you checked your HOSTS file?

    FYI, if your brother visited the wrong kind of site, it could have downloaded and installed a hijacker virus faster than he could have opened, edited and saved your hosts file.
