[duplicate] Need help with browser hijacker

Unread postby rg6 » October 2nd, 2009, 9:12 am

I apparently have a browser hijacker. I use Mozilla Firefox 3.5.3, but the problem also occurred when I tried IE7. I am regularly suffering from (1) 404 errors, (2) links being redirected to unknown pages (3) favicon changes on the bookmark toolbar (4) inability to open Google Calendar due to redirection error and (5) a Firefox warning that something out of the ordinary is happening asking if I want to "get out of here" (which I have not always heeded, but now do).

Generally, if I restart my computer the problem goes away for a while. This is not always true. The Hijackthis log file below was created just after a restart when things were working well, except one bookmark icon still contained the wrong favicon.

Your help is appreciated!
