    I have norton internet security, spyware doctor, xoftspy se, adware se
    I have ran all of then and have no virus.

    But when i type in internet explorer or google and search for a site it takes me to a different site that i did not type in and the sites are high risk.

    I have ran all scans for virus and have not picked up any trojans or worms.
    That i can find. But i most have sometihng.

    your computer has been hijacked.

    do a system restore, or search the c:\ drive for odd looking files which planted the hijack.

    i did a restore on mine, got rid of it

    Hi!!! That is interesting.... It's kind of like that feature in Windows Vista, that allows a friend to link to your computer, remember that? Norton does allow an independant scan in case the software is malfunctioning, which has happened to me, but not because of a virus. Is it possible your computer has a simple registry problem ?

    Also check task manager and do a Google on all processes that you don't know anything about. I found a redirector at a client site that way. ProcView might also help as it breaks out the svchost entries.

  6. Hi!! I put RegCure on my computer, it cleans up file pathways, it does so much I'm impressed. I was thinking maybe a run away Active X could have corrupted file pathways and logs. With the proper training a person might get by without a repair tech. Celestra
