Hi,
My IE (winXP Pro latest updates) has been atttacked and now everytime I get an error when testing pages on my IIS server the error pages displays for a second and then it gets redirected to this domain: http://www.internet-optimizer.com   . It is making testing extremely difficult. Does anyone know a solution to this. Also, my home page was changed, which is easily fixed. So far I have run Lavasoft Adaware, AVG Antivirus, and set my security levels to High for internet and intranet. None of these have helped. I need this fixed real quick in order to get back to my work-flow.
Thanks

It might changed your IIS server Property default setting, Check IIS Custom Error Setting Web Pages in C:\WINNT\help\iisHelp\common\ and check the Internal Server Error Pages 50*.htm also check the 40*.htm to find out the malicious page and correct it.
