I don't understand whats happened to my browser's mind! When I type in www.google.com into my IE browser, it takes me to www.google.com.org or some auto.msn.search url?
What the hell is THIS problem?
When I try to click on links in any website (after trying to get to the page a zillion times) I get "page cannot be displayed".
My internet connection is fine. The one moment the browser works and then suddenly it doesn't. The one moment my Microsoft outlook works fine when recieving or sending messages ,but after a while it can't send or recieve.
That sounds suspiciously like a 'worm' that infected your machine. I woulde browse around (if you can) for worm/virus detectors. Stick with the major brand names, some of those insert their own nasties! -Larry
Also I cannot help myself, I must plug Grisoft, the best AVG software I've found. Dump Norton, dump MacAfee, this is a FREE lightweight AVG solution with FREE daily updates (others charge subscriptions) and works WELL. System, file, and email scans.
I already have up-to-date versions of Grisofts AVG. I also already have Ad-Aware AND Spybot AND CWShredder.
I already scanned my PC twice! Full system scans. Spybot found a trojan and it fixed it,but the problem persist. So this morning I downloaded XoftSpy SE V.4.23 and it found a Dialer Worm. It showed the destination folder of the infected files, but I couldn't remove it with the software due to the fact that I had to buy it. So I just permanently deleted the folder with the infected files.
The problem still persists. It was difficult as hell to reply to this thread. My page don't want to load and disconnects, even though my internet connection is fine the whole time.
Isn't there another anti worm software that I can get my hands on for free?
You need to redo all of your moves in SAFE MODE Anytime you find something write down its name before doing anything Use another machine and search for removal instruc Quite frequently del a file or folder does not kill the root of the problem New pests may self mutate, self rename and self reload when threatened. Further what ever you delete has counterpart in your registration So you need a tool that will deal with the reg.
Did you try MS removal tool?
Did you try to go back in time and reset your machine as it was a couple of days ago? (reg restore)
