Even after i run the IE6 and goto address google.com, its not displaying, its automatically goes MEDS  page.

after Totally reinstall the Win2000, still i have the same problem.

I tried with Spy Sweeper, Spybot - Search & Destroy , Hijackthis etc.  But still i have the same problem. "Med Network" in title and "RX MED" and some medicine names in the page.

if i try to visit this site,
http://www.spychecker.com/program/coolwebshredder.html

the following line displays in the browser.

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /program/coolwebshredder.html on this server.

i got the same error for some more sites.

When ransomware hits your clients, what do you do?

MSPs: Endpoint security isn’t enough to prevent ransomware.
As the impact and severity of crypto ransomware attacks has grown, Webroot has fought back, not just by building a next-gen endpoint solution capable of preventing ransomware attacks but also by being a thought leader.

Search for a file called HOSTS (no extension) and rename it OLDHOST.

See if that helps.

If that doesn't do it, download, install and run HijackThis:

Do not post the log here, use this site for auto-analysis:

This will tell the nasty entries to be fixed.

Do take a look at this excellent HJT tutorial:

Good luck,

If you post the HJT log here:

http://www.hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english

Press the analyze button. You can save the analysis pressing a button down after the log.

Save it and post the link here for me to take a look.
