Thread: Computer Problem!

I don't know what kind Trojen I got but I can't type in any urls into the address box...When I do it brings me to this www.seach.cc it's some kind of search page. And I can't reset my homepage at all when I do it resets it that searchpage.
The only websites I can go to with out any problem is websites on my fav's list.
My anti virus isn't picking up anything and I did a spybot check and It didn't find anything either.
Anyone have any ideas of what I can do to get rid of this?

I'm downloading addware right now but I don't know if it's gonna work.
I can go to webpages that come up in search that i do from the top of the browser...other then that when I type in a url of a website it redirects me to that search page.

try another virus scan and do you have adaware 6.0? run that see if it picks it up,

MBaraso, I had the same thing and it was a bitch to get rid of...
If i remember right i had to run ad-aware and spysweeper, i can't
remember which one worked, but one of them couldn't remove it...
Also had to do a complete restore on the PC because it seriously
screwed some **** up...

Adware found alot of things but it didn't solve the problem. Spybot found nothing and neither did my norton anti v.
Anyone else have any ideas?

I have a 'Trojan Downloader' as well...
I have found it....but wont let me delete it...because it's 'being used'...
How do you do a full restore?

I got rid of it with spysweeper... just keep it up to date... although like many others stated, I feel reformatting your pc is always a good idea... It's nice to have a fresh install every once in awhile.

The computer store that fixed my pc (rid me of my virus) said that norton wasnt very good. They recommended McAffe. Had another bud that had norton and got hit hard also. Just my $ .02

no problems at all...... has to do with actually updating the definitions as often as every 45 minutes,
