can't get to microsoft update and broswer appears hijacked

Post by moreyag on Fri Feb 04, 2011 9:41 am

Good morning.
I am running IE8 on a Win XP Pro SP3 pc and i am experiencing two difficulties at the moment. First, i can't get to the Windows Update page to perform any updates. Second, when i hit the "back" button on the browser, it does not take me to the prior page but opens random BS pages.
I checked all my IE settings, they are OK, but something is wrong somewhere!
Please help?
Thanks in advance and best regards
Morey G

Hello.

Download [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.
