Well, I am certainly regretting the purchase of NOD32 antivirus. I have a system infected with a *very* persistant hijacker which blocks web display of anti-virus sites and often interfers with running av software. I have throw everything I have at it, cleaned all caches, checked the hosts file, shut down all processes, even run Hjackthis, AdAware, etc. (of course, these didn't have the latest definitions as they are blocked). ran everything I could in safe mode. No luck. The main symptom is a redirect once a search is conducted and I click on a search result. I can only assume that the malware is also stealing info via keylogging, etc...so I cannot conduct online business or banking. i also installed NOD, and of course, it would not update. I assume it is being blocked by the malware...? So I opened a ticket asking for help is obtaining the latest definitions so NOD could actually detect the malware. That was last week. So much for a 24-hour reply. THAT being said, does anyone know of a way to get the definitions, so that NOD can (hopefully) defeat the malware on my system. Or should I go and purchase McAfee (yuck) or Norton? Or try something else? I'm at wit's end. P.S. I am strongly in favor of the death penalty for hackers and malware writers. Honestly, these people need to grow up!
