    I'm assuming you've already tried SpywareBlaster. ;) If so, it sounds like this may be something new.

    In fact, it sounds like it is related to (not to mention the website you posted goes to a page). You may be able to delete it from your system by downloading the following software.

    Instead of disabling or protecting, try cleaning your system with Spybot S & D from
    Get the latest updates for it by going to the Online tab, and then scan your system. Items in red are spyware and can be removed by pressing the "Fix Selected Problems" button. If this detects the hijacker you have, great. If it doesn't please post again and I'll walk you through some additional steps so we can figure out what it is, where it is stored, and how to get rid of it.

    Good luck,

    SpyBot will remove most of LOP, but may not get rid of the redirection problem.

    If running SpyBot (don't forget to install the latest updates first) doesn't solve it, do this:

    Copy the bold to Notepad, and save as lop.reg
    Doubleclick. Answer yes when asked whether you want the contents of lop.reg added to the registry, and reboot when you're done.












    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{D44B5436-B3E4-4595-B0E9-106690E70A58}]




    If even that doesn't get rid of all of it, do a Registry search for

    Start > Run > Regedit, then Edit > Find

    You may find one or two left in "Domain"registry values in Subkeys to this Registry key:

    Note that you need to press F3 after the first 'hit' to force Regedit to search for the next one. Keep on doing that until the entire Registry has been searched.

    Once found, doubleclick that value in the right hand pane in order to bring up the 'edit' box, and delete in the Value Data box to leave it empty, and press 'OK'.

    Reboot, and test again.
