So every time I log onto my computer my internet opens up automatically, first thing, and it always shows me this page called hits4pay.com or something like that...
its really annoying...like this is the first thing that happens when i turn on my computer..I dont even go on the internet ..this just pops up and I dont know why..
Does anyone know how I can get rid of it??
Ive never even heard of this site..its so weird..I have no idea why this happens..

Is there anything I can do to get rid of this..? I didn't even do anything...I just want to get rid of this..and I just finished scanning my comp. with an anti-virus program and an adware program and a registry mechanic program and it didn't find anything..
and I still get this pop up..

How can I get rid of it..?
Can someone help me out.?

-Thanks=)

Hmm well its definitly a virus/addware. What anti virus program are you useing? PCTools I believe is good protection but this thing could be going pretty deep. Look up Spyware Doctor.

Also,
Take a look at you startup config. There should be something there telling it to do so. Im not at my home computer and my work comp doesnt allow me to edit setting but I BELIEVE this can be done by clicking START>RUN> MSConfig. There should be a startup tab there.

I used Avast anti-virus and ad-aware program and registry mechanic..
I'll try PCTools and Spyware Doctor.


Ooh I went to MSConfig and then startup programs and then I looked and that program is there.. Hits4pay.url..I don't even know how that got there..
so now how can I delete it from there..or do I need to go to it's location and delete it from there..?

You can change the settings to stop it from running on start up. But this is only a temporary fix. You will want to remove what ever is behind it. For now, follow the above link.
