system error

Unread postby jtb12 » January 6th, 2008, 9:55 am

I am getting a system error message pop up. "your computer was infected by unkown trojan.
It's dangerous for your system (critical files will can be lost). Click ok to download the anti spy ware program to clean your system ( recommended).

Then I am directed to a sight IEDefender. My norton product blocks this downloader?

I have tried Hijack this in safe mode and normal mode
I have tried AVG 7.5 in safe mode and normal mode & Spy Bot & ad aware.

Nothing seems to be able to stop this. Also when I try to use google I am directed to IEdefender when clicking on a link in google.
thank you. :|

Thanks for operating this site. I found an answer. I was able to piece together some things from other posts and found that the smitfraud fix worked very well. I was hoping to get a direct response but it seems that this particular hijacking is occurring frequently to others. I am not the best at this but find these things useful learning experiences. Thanks again for putting this site together.
