    Opens an IE popup to a pornportal every thirty seconds.
    Nothing shows up in a HijackThis log

    To solve this issue, copy the part in bold below, save it as a .reg file and doubleclick that file. Ok to the prompt if you want to merge it with the registry.

    REGEDIT4

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "YAHOOSubst"=-
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
    "YAHOOSubst"=-


    Will keep you posted as soon as we learn more.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    This one will now be found by HijackThis (1.97.5) as you can see in this thread .
    So the above regfix is no longer needed.

    Regards,
