Hi
One of my stored 'favourites' web sites has become unavailable. Behaviour until tonight was:
"page cannot be displayed" was first displayed,
then an F5 refresh would link to various porn sites.
Don't seem to be getting the link to any unwanted sites any more, but can't get to the desired web site either (still getting page cannot be displayed error).
Only happens for the one web page. All others still function OK.
Have scanned with Norton Symantec and AVG and nothing was found.
Attached is the output from HijackThis.
Any ideas?
Thanks

Hi
Ok.I spot the problem..


Please download FixWareout from one of these sites:
http://downloads.subratam.org/Fixwareout.exe
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/file...Fixwareout.exe

Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish.
The fix will begin; follow the prompts.
You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so.
Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.
Once the desktop loads Save the text that will open (report.txt) to your desktop.


Should you have problems connecting to the internet after the fix, follow these instrutions.

Please go to Start -> Control Panel Network Connections. Rightclick on your default connection (usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up) and leftclick on Properties. Doubleclick on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the button that says "Obtain DNS servers automatically". Click OK twice, and restart your computer.


In your next reply, please include a fresh Hijackthis log and report.txt. Thanks

Hi there
Thank you - have run tools as instructed and can now get back to my favourite web site. Internet connection worked first time. (Was it just the DNS server setting that was stuffing everything up or is/was there more evil stuff lurking in the depths??)

Attached are the logs you requested.

Cheers.
