Rogue Program Hijacking IE
Posted on 2006-07-10
Hi I Have got a real headache with this problem.
After surfing some P2P sights I have now got several problems in the form of adverts and hijackers. The Main prob seems to be a small prog called Spyware Quake 2.3. This program keeps directing me to a sight where I am invited to buy the full program. There are also more popups for varying types of software from the same sight. including anti virus.
I have done a full scan with AVG no virus detected.
I have done a full scan with AdAware cleaned everything out
I have emptied IE of cookies and internet files
I have used search to try and find anything I Can deleat, could only find a couple of IE files to deleat.
I found Spyware Quake hidden in the Windows program files, but not in Control Panel, and it would not let me deleate it from there.
Also after downloading Warez P2P I cannot get rid of that iether as the Uninstall shortcut is broken and will not repair.
Can anyone help please!!
