Hijack this was halted by warning box when the program scanned, something about "host redirection" , but gave a list of the scan results. It also opened a blank notepad. I could not figure out how to highlight the result from the scan in order to post it here.

Grrr.
Please download StartupLite.

Run it and untick all un-needed programs, the one causing the block is called NetSetMan.

Hello.
Please try this instead.

  • Now open a new notepad file.
  • Input this into the notepad file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "NetSetMan"=-
    "WMPNSCFG"=-
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "QuickTime Task"=-
    "iTunesHelper"=-
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce]
    "Launcher"=-

  • Save this as fix.reg, save it to your desktop.
  • Double click fix.reg to run it.
  • Select yes to the registry merge prompt.

Please reboot normally and let me know if there is any difference.
