    Suddenly my home page keeps changing to some security page. Also, there is a handicap sign in my tray that changes back and forth to a red circle with a red lign thru it.

    Can you help.

    I have ewido 3.5

    Hi TW88,

    This is a malware infection, this has nothing to do with Ewido. You should probably visit one of these ASAP ( Alliance of Security Analysis Professionals ) forums to help you.

    I thought ewido was suppose to detect and remove "malware infections". ;)

    It does detect and remove many malware infections. But some are able to hide themselves or resist removal unless you use special tools to disable them before you run an Ewido scan. BTW - have you run a full scan with Ewido and has it found anything? What about your AV? It neither finds anything, you need to submit a HijackThis log at one of the ASAP forums. The malware could be related to a rootkit or using a vulnerability in you Java program. The HJT analysts can advise you on special tools for removal. You could also try F-Secure's Blacklight (rootkit revealer) to scan for hidden processes. If Blacklight can find and disable a hidden process, then Ewido should be able to detect and remove it. But for complete clean up, you still need to submit a HJT log at those forums.
