dns4error - hijacked IE pages

Unread postby jstanleyiii » September 7th, 2008, 12:18 am

I have some kind of browser hijacker -- that defauls me to a dns4error.com page no matter where I try to go to. Here's my Hijack This notepad text. Any help to get rid of this malware is appreciated. I have tried every spyware and virus program known and nothing gets it. Please help!

Thank you for responding. I found a fix, at least it seems. I downloaded IE7 (hesitantly) and the SP3, and spent 7 hours on the phone with MS in India and we we're able to get it done. It seems IE7, with the malicous spyware removal tool built-in, got it. Fingers crossed. I waited a couple days and there was no reply to my post, so I just assumed there was no one who could help me. Thank you again! James
