My Computer Was Hijacked, Need Help On Restoring!

Wed Mar 31, 2004 1:01 pm

Hey all,

About an hour ago my computer was hi-jacked by spyware. I managed to get rid of the spyware but now when I open explorer I get "Cannot find C:///WINDOWS/Secure.html Please make sure path or address is correct"

Anybody know how to set it so it doesn't try to open the spyware file which is gone? Changing my homepage doesn't seem to work.

Thanks

Kris

Well it was something like that, I can't remember exactly. And it appears I still have spyware as the word "spyware" shows up as a link. I'm so pissed off right now

Hi Chris,

You may want to try using HijackThis. It will allow you to find hidden BHO's and other browser homepage hijackings. You can find it here: http://tomcoyote.com/hjt

After checking out HJT, I would also recommend installing Ad-Aware, SpyBot S&D and SpywareBlaster.

Ad-Aware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com
SpyBot S&D: http://security.kolla.de
SpywareBlaster: http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

Good luck and down with Spyware!!
