    Hey,
    This is my first time posting here, but I heard you guys can fix pretty much anything. I am not sure if you have heard about this problem but it stems from AIM. One of my buddies had a link in his profile to www.realphx.com. Not thinking it was anything bad and since he is my friend, i clicked it, only to have it send me to a site with 2 links to two porn sites. I clicked out of it thinking "haha" he got me. But today when i went on internet explorer, www.realphx.com was my home page and the site link was also in my aim profiles. Naturally, i tried to change the homepage back which seemed to work until about 5 minuters later when it changed back to www.realphx.com. My brother sat here for about an hour trying to delete and/or install and uninstall stuff, but nothing seems to be working. I will paste the log from hijack this below. Thanks a lot for any help i can get.

    Welcome to TSG!

    You've been hit by a new one that just surfaced this morning at Spywareinfo.

    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.realphx.com

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Antivirus] c:\av.exe

    Restart to Safe Mode: press f8 on startup and select Safe Mode from the boot menu.

    In Safe Mode delete:

    The c:\av.exe file

    I would get rid of this one too:

    Go to Add/remove programs and uninstall Paltalk

    Fix this with HJT
    O4 - Startup: PalNetaware.lnk = C:\Paltalk\pnetaware.exe

    Delete the C:\Paltalk folder

    See here:
