Comcast virus

Unread postby DimitriL » January 26th, 2006, 2:10 pm

Hi. I've already gone to the Dell HijackThis forum but haven't had any luck so far.

Okay, here's what's going on. Whenever the infected Inspiron tries to load up the browser, it comes up with a page with a badly rendered Comcast logo and some instructions about needing to download software. We don't click the link, of course, but it's impossible to access any page in IE or Firefox with the hijacking. Here's the Hijack Log:
