Web Site 188.8.131.52 keeps displaying and IE Home Page changes to about-blank.ws
Posted on 2004-04-08
It appears I have an IE Browser Hijack which I am finding extremely difficult to get rid of. Several related items are occuring on my PC.
1) Every few minutes while dialed-in to the net, web site 184.108.40.206 keeps displaying in a new IE window. This sites says I have accessed an illegal Pedo Site and the FBI are tracking my net activities. I know this to be untrue, so I suspect Spyware is doing this.
2) My home web page is changed to about-blank.ws In my attempts to fix this, home page changed to freednshost.info page.
3) The following Shortcuts appear on the desktop, Debt Solutions, Party Poker.com and Party Poker which all take you to site 220.127.116.11 and there is also a Shortcut for "You have visited an illegal Pedo site" which takes you to 18.104.22.168.
I have run SpyBot S&D 1.2, Ad-aware 6.181 and SpyHunter and Nortons Internet Security 2004 and all of them have not been able to fix this problem.
I would appreciate it very much if someone could please help me solve this annoying issue. I have run HiJack This and fixed the usual "Search' reg entries, but they came back. I didn't dare fix anything else I was not sure about.
