Hi, I am running Windows Xp pro with IE 6, and every day, I get the following links appear in my IE history although I have not visited the sites. If I clear my IE history, they appear again the next day.

I run AVG for virus protection, I have tried Adaware and Spyware doctor but they find nothing. I have also check running tasks and all appears to be ok. Can anyone help please?

Hi Tried Sajuks recommendations, found the registry key and removed it, however, this crashed windowns and it would not restart, not even in safe mode, so had to use the orginal Windows XP disks and repair the Windows Install.

Machine is working ok now though and the hijack appears to have gone!

Thanks
