I found a really good program that will kill evil browser hijacking stuff, like the one that comes with MSN messenger Plus! it takes my browser to "Not Found" 1 outta 10 pages I visit, and redirects it to an ad page, and it has that stupid search bar I can't kill. If you have this problem go here:

with messenger plus, you can actually decide not to install all the stuff, you just during installation need to click "i decline" instead of i accept, because what the dialog box really says is if you want to install the sponsor program, not terms and conditions.

i use that s&d, it picked up some stuff norton didn't Very Happy

I downloaded AVG, right after installation, there were several messages telling me its found "Trojan Horse" drop or something, but I wasn't able to fix it because it was in the restart computer phase of installation... now Im scanning, and its done, and it hasnt found anything!!!??
PS: any of you who knows anything about getting past windows log in and stuff, check my question in spam section, I posted there because I didn't think it was that important.

Thats kind of odd , i may have quarentined them before the reboot all by itself or it could just be a hook , so when you install you think wow this rally does work , it already found a virus , programs have been known to work on hooks , but im not sure what to say , ask dan i think he uses AVG Very Happy

it probly moved it to the "virus valute". AVG is a good progame no hooks.

I ran it for a second time, and it found a couple of files infected by "Trojan Horse: Dropper.Swicer.A", were they hiding or something? My dad's Norton Anti Virus wasn't able to find anything.
