      You should use SpyBot Search and Destroy, CWShredder and HiJack This you need to run in order to remove spyware from your machine. I like to run them in the following order:

      CWShredder
      SpyBot Search and Destroy
      Ad Aware
      HiJack This

      These are all very useful tools, but they seem to work best if you run them in safe mode, preferrably Safe Mode Command Prompt. You can run all of them from the Command Prompt if you copy them to the harddrive from the GUI first. Keep in mind also that you have to run all the tools in each profile, including the Administrative profile.

      Turn off System Restore

      Yup, you have been hijacked. I have used all of the tools mentioned in answers 1 and 2. They are all good tools. The easiest to use is probably Spybot but AdAware runs easily also with the default configuration. Just remember to do an update before running any syware removal utility.

      After running any of these tools, go to the ms update site and get all of the latest security updates for your os.

      Another tool you might want to consider is a personal firewall. I prefer ZoneAlarm but there are other good ones out there too. The free versions are ample for home use.

      Cheers.

      Hi,

      I recently found a utility that shifts the most stubborn of hijackers, like “about:blank”, called Adware Away. Do a search for a 5 day free trial.
      $30 to buy.

      Once you have cleared the hijack and the other stuff assuming that you can indeed do this, consider SpyWareBlaster –

      http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
      (remove any spaces that mey have appeared)

      This is a piece of software that simply configures the “Restricted sites” and Cookies area of Internet Explorer, so that when you visit one of the 3000 odd restricted sites, you can’t download things from it.

      It is free software and the manual updates of the site database are also free. Automatic updates cost about US$10 per annum.

      Works for me.

      I used some time before solving this problem with hijacked IE:

      1: Download Hijack This. Link: http://www.spychecker.com/download/download_hijackthis.html
      2: Run Taskmanager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and end Process with name: letsroll.exe
      3: Run Hijack This and use the program to fix c:windows\system32\letsroll.exe under index O4
      4: Remove program letsroll.exe in archive c:windows\system32

      U dont have to run the Ad-aware to fix this problem (but run it anyway)

      Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

      Download, update, and run the following.

      Your Antivirus Software.

      If you don?t have a current antivirus You can get a free copy of Computer Associates etrust antivirus.

      This item will not update through the program. You have to download the new version.

      Hijack This
      This program is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure. Items you are not sure of do a Google search for them.

      Run Your Antivirus again

      Download and install all OS updates.

      I have had to boot into safe mode and run the removal programs.

      Good Luck Lee
