    Hello
    Please Help Me,

    I have been having some issues with my browser being highjacked. I've been fighting it for weeks now with no results. nothing seems to work.

    I am running Norton Antivirus, WIndows XP and I've looked up just about everything on Noron's site. I've been over my registry deleting everything that I can find, that has been clearly marked.

    Trouble is that I can't seem to delete some items, or they are reinstalled, because I missed something.

    My IE browser keeps pulling up xlime.offeroptimizer, enigmasoftware group, ad serve, incredifind, as well as a half dozen other things and bombarding me with popups.

    I ran Adaware as well as Spybot on several occasions. Just before I ran Hijack this I ran Spybot, and Ie is still giving me headaches.

    Here are my results.

    Dear Sir,

    I was thrilled to see that you had replied to my post personally this morning, and I am anxious to follow your instructions.

    I am unable to follow your directions until later in the day, as I am on a different PC right now, at work, however I was looking over the fix log, which to me appears to be one of the worst that I've seen to date on your site.

    I notice a few Google toolbar items that I am instructed to fix. Is Google a concern?? I usually enjoy the features that it provides and use them regularly, including popup blocker and the search features, as well as the highlighting of searched terms in the document.

    Should I refrain from using this?? Are there security issues that I should be concerned about? I'd be curious to know what sort of information that they are collecting because of these features?

    Thanks a Million

    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Are we looking at the same post?
    I did not recommend you to remove any parts of the Google-bar.

    If you are looking at these:
    C:\PROGRA~1\Toolbar\toolbar.dll
    Those are definitely not Google's but Huntbar related spyware.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    Hello Pieter,

    I was able to follow your directions, and it worked.

    It did remove my google bar, however, I read the agreement that came with it, and decided not to reinstall it.

    is there anything that I can do to thank you guys.

    This is the one and only time that I've ever got help for free.

    can I support your affiliates, recommend people to go to your websites etc.??

    Thanks a million

    MM
