using internet explorer on windows xp, when i click on a link from the router's configuration site to upgrade the routers software (2wire 1000SW) i get redirected to porn. how do i stop this from happening? it's weird becuase if its on the intranet i would think theres something wrong with my dns cache or what? im sure the link is to a intranet site as well, its something like "http://home.download_upgrade/manual.htm" so isnt that just stored in the router?

how can i remove reset the dns or whatever so i can access the link and not some stupid porn site.

yes, plenty of scans

ran ccleaner, windows defender, adaware SE, norton antivirus.....

found plenty of issues but cleaned them all, now im just trying to figure out how to clean/restore whatever file is used to control broken links like that.....

i want to know what is making the browser redirect to porn after i click on a broken link

run HijackThis, ur gonna want 2 save it 2 ur desktop, go through the setup blah blah lol..

click on the 1st option, "Do a System Scan and Save a Logfile"..

when the scans done, the log will pop-up in notepad, copy the log, go 2 the HiJackThis section of this site, and post the log..
