    Alright, so according to what everyone else is saying, my computer was hijacked. I typed "hotmail.com" into the address bar of internet explorer and all of the sudden I was taken to the xrenoder site. It changed my security level of my web browser and added a bunch of porn crap to my favorites. I think I deleted everything and changed my settings back, but should I go ahead and download HijackThis to be sure?

    Thank you!! =)
