    Hijacked home page


    undefined
    I use IE with Windows XP. My normal home page has been hijacked with a message bar reading "about:blank" and a website directory showing up.
    I have used Internet Options to "delete history" and also I have loaded my normal home page then "use current" to change to my normal home page. When I re-load IE it goes back to the rogue website. I have used Spyware to find bad files etc and it seemed to catch many, but not this particular rogue.
    Ideas please to wrsl@ibl.bm

    broxie,

    If the above solutions doesn't rectify the problem, feel free to post a HijackThis log.

    Enable everything in MSCONFIG (if you have disabled anything). Go to Start > Run > msconfig > click Startup Tab > everything should have a checkmark to the left of it.

    Download HijackThis (link below). Make sure you install HijackThis to a permanent folder such as C:\HJT as it creates backups of what we will fix. Run the program, press Scan, press Save log. Notepad will open, copy and paste the entire log into your post. Do not fix anything yet, most of what's in the log is needed!
