Re: Internet Explorer has taken over my computer


I'm not quite sure with what's going on there, so let's take this one step at a time, and check some of that out as we go...

Run HiJackThis and click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride =;http://localhost;

R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - ~CFBFAE00-17A6-11D0-99CB-00C04FD64497} - (no file)
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - _{44F9B173-041C-4825-A9B9-D914BD9DCBB3} - (no file)

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present
(Unless you've set these with a anti-spyware program like SpyBot's Immunize feature, have HiJackThis fix this.)

Now, with all windows closed except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

Since the online scan found some problems, let's run it again and see what it tells us. Have you also tried running AdAware SE Personal and Spybot S&D yet? They may turn something up also.
Post back a new log, with the results of the online scan.
