Default Re: I need help with a nasty hijacker

You could always get the firefox browser its excellent, www.mozzilla.org but u would still probably have the same problem without using everyones elses previous techniques to clean it up.

Prior to all of this I started using the Firefox browser as suggested by virus_killer. I like it better that IE, so I thinks I'll keep using that.

Mr.mixx,
Thanks for your suggestions as well, I was wondering how to disable that problem reporting to Microsoft!!

AOL Instant messaging works again as well.

Life is good again!!
Glad you got it fixed, you don't owe me anything

I know this is old but i forgot to answer one question....

To turn off that annoying error message thing, that say's it will send it to Microsoft ....What a joke.

To turn this annoinying bugger off, just click start/ right click my computer/ click advanced/ then click ERROR REPORTING

once there put a check mark in the box that say's disable error reporting, but put a check in the box that say's but notify me if a critical error occurs.
