    Just started yourspywareguard and have a warning message approx. 8 or more per minute saying:
    Spywareguard Browser Protection alert!
    an attemt to change Internet Explorer settings has been detected.


    _________________________________________________________________
    what would you like to do?
    Restore old value Keep new value

    I always choose restore old value. Don't know any better! While this message is on the screen, I can type nothing. I must stop and answer the constant warning(?). How can I stop this or is it a "fix" for the hole in IE that Microsoft has? Yes I have downloaded all that I can from Windows Update.
    How can I stop this constant "pest" of an alert from happening?

    Thank you for answering my problem. Also thanks for the program.
    The message in answer to where the old "address" was and where it will be sent or changed to is as follows.

    Internet Explorer from:
    hxxp: //wwwCtwnfcwmsh.com/MluY10Epdu34aBoaMuQN89huC3tbkbH7eYwg6DTDrU

    Will be changed to:

    hxxp: //www.ievvivzauranukptctvr.net/Mlu10Epdu34abMuQN89huC3tbkbH7eYw7g6.

    Thanks again, I'll be waiting for your responce.

    Possible malware?
    Internet Hijacking?

    Have you any anti-spyware programs? (i.e. Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D 1.3 etc.)

    Ok, I have previously had friends ask me to secure their computer from Adware and sypware before and this is what I usually do and it tends to be very effective.

    First, after downloading the latest updates, I would run the latest version of Ad-Aware I can get my hands on and perform a full system scan. I would then run a search in spybot search and destroy after aqcuiring the latest updates, removing any nasties. I would imunize my system using the imunize feature in spybot search and destroy.

    I would then install Spyware Blaster and block every nasty I can to prevent anything being downloaded again. I would delete all tempory history, all cookies and all other tempory files. Maybe install and run Fast Clean by Eshinesoft.

    However, there is the possibility that by removing components with such tools, you may find that there is actually a simple uninstall application which could become corrupted by such tools being run.

    You could try following the comprehensive steps found in General Cleaning. The steps mentioned use software that ought to be part of your security, as an absolute minimum. Once your system is clean, please don’t hesitate to ask further about using these and other security software to protect your computer.

    Hope this helps...

    Let us know how you go.

    Cheers :D

    Blackspear, I didn't realise we had such a section. I didn't think my post was too far off comprehensive steps :D
