Unread postby Felicity_Morris » July 15th, 2010, 8:41 am

Hi, am getting a search settings pop up every time my computer is switched on. Specifically "Search Settings v 1.2.3" from Spigot, Inc. Really want to remove, but am having a hard time doing it. Tried for hijackthis log but keep getting text box about "for some reason your system denied write access to the Hosts. file" - HELP!

Thanks very much, all help greatly appreciated :)

An Uninstall List, while very helpful, is essentially useless without a HijackThis log.

In order for us to help you it is necessary that you provide us with a HijackThis log. Please follow the guideline at the link below to start a new topic and post your HijackThis log by pasting it into your post. Do not utilize attachments.
