Comp Virus .. I think

I have my home page set to msn.ca but when i open internet explorer to changes to a wholesale website and then a full screen pop-up to buy games, online casinos ect pops-up. Anyone know how to rid my computer of this?

Click the "tools" at the top of your screen, then click on "internet options". The 1st item in the "general" tab is HOMEPAGE. Hit the default button and that should do the trick...if it doesn't, go to msn.ca and do all those steps again but instead of the default key, click the "current" button...cheers...

It fixes it while I am on, but where I restart it goes back.

your fonts are now screwy I think...SPYBOT rocks...try uninstalling Explorer as a last option and re-installing it...you may have to mess with a couple of things...

once you have ran spybot, and the crap comes up with checked boxers, just under it, you will see where it says, 'fix'. Click that.. It will clean all that crap off your comp..

I ran it .. then again, and a 'redirection hijacker' reappeared ... ? That is my problem and it seems to want to stay
