trojan lolita ie6 search page default

By jdamico ·
My home PC has been invaded by a trojan which has changed my default search to www.lolitasex-top.com. I cleaned out the registry and un/reinstalled IE6, which seemed to work, but the next day it was back! (writing this I am wondering about a boot sector virus??). Here's the kicker: I went to an antivirus site to search for help on this. When I put in "lolita" as one of the keywords and clicked the search button, two new windows opened up to violent sex pages. Running Win98, Mcafee antivirus which did find the trojan but apparently didn't clean it out completely. I know this is a tough one, points are high accordingly. Thanks!!!

Scroll down the page to "I can't change my home page - it keeps resetting"

Also:

scroll down to:

"Spyware, Browser Hijackings and other Antisocial Tricks"

Here's a freeware that works pretty well

Open the browser and select Tools,then Internet Options,on General tab,you will type in the home page you prefer

Click on Start->Search-->Find,Files or Folders
Type in lolita in the search box or any word that would reference the sex pages,note the location of these files or folders
Open Windows Explorer and delete the file or folders

Also you will need to delete all cookies and temporary files,delete history,you may want to use a spyware utility to see if this will help.

I followed these suggestions and found "tray.exe" on my C: drive. Deleted everything, restored IE settings and so far so good. Thanks!
