    Hello.
    I have an HP Pavilion running Windows XP 2.8 processor, 1024 ram
    My problem is:
    My home page is set to be the 'Virgin net' page, this is confirmed when i go into internet properties and connections, because it says 'Virgin.net' ect ect, but when i open the internet explorer icon it sends me to a page called 'allsecruitynotes.com. This telling me I have allsorts of Spyware on board.
    When I change back to the Virgin net page, close the internet, go back to it later, it will have changed back to the 'allsecruitynotes' page.
    I have run Ad aware several times it says all clear, so i tried Spybot, this found some more nasties, cleared them all.
    I am using Norton antivirus, this is coming out as all Ok.
    Other pages are available as I was recommended to yourselves by the Virgin Tech team, and thats how I'm here.
    Help please

    yeah you have certainly got something. Looks like one of those ones that changes the default settings no matter what you do. I will get this post moved to Security for better assistance. In the mean time, make a new folder (ie C:\Highjackthis) and download HighJackThis into that folder. Then install it. After installing it, run it and click on Run Scan and save log file. After the scan, it should ask you to save it. Save it and then it should show the scan in Notepad. Copy and paste the entire log here. Someone will take a look at it to help you get rid of the spyware/malware

    I'll move your post to the Security forum and have a look at your log when you post it.
