Mistake

Here is the issue. I have been Hijacked. i have used the latest and greatest anti-hijack , Malware, spyware software out there. I have also used Mircosoft Live scan. McAfee and AVG. Nothing is working. No matter what I do I am still getting hijacked. Please if you have any more ideas let me know. I will be reformatting my hard drive tonight if I can not fix it. It happens on my Firefox and IE Thanks.

Hi and welcome to TSF

To be totally honest, many times it is quicker to a total wipe, after you back up all your important doc's and pic's, etc. Make sure that you have all the disks you need to do this first.

TSF is a really big forum, but there are always more requests for help than we have helpers to assist.

If you have the time we will try to help you so you don't have to do a total wipe and reinstall.

If so Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:
https://www.techsupportforum.com/f50/...lp-305963.html

After running through all the steps, please post the requested logs in the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum, not here.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

Please note that the Virus/Trojan/Spyware Help forum is extremely busy, and it may take a while to receive a reply.

Backup all your stuff and reformat.

Also, when did the problems begin?

After downloading and executing a file?
Visiting a website which could possibly be dangerous?
Allowing an unsigned Active X to run in IE?

Also, if you have a USB and used it in a friends machine etc. There machine could of possibly been infected and a autorun file may have been silently been added. So check that out just in case.
