    i have looked at the other threads & nothing seems to be working. i am using
    windows vista basic edition & starting maybe a month ago my computer wouldn't
    get any updates it needed. i originally thought it was just a problem that
    could be fixed on its own, but i see now that is not the case. when i try to
    go to the links i saw on the other threads my internet doesn't let me go
    there. i need help beause i fear my computer is missing valuable updates.
    what should i do?

  2. You will have to use another machine to download your tools, etc., and post
    logs to an appropriate forum.

    There is a very good chance are that you are seeing the affects of a
    hijackware infection.

    1. See if you can download/run the MSRT manually:
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx

    2. Now run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting the
    requested logs in an appropriate forum, not here.

    If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
    isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
    independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.

    I'm having the exact same problem. I'm not particularly Windows savvy, but
    have done a Live OneCare scan (found problems, couldn't fix them all). The
    problem happens in both Firefox (my browser of choice) and IE7. I have run my
    scans using AVG, no problems encountered, and used MalwareBytes but still,
    nothing. I am pretty sure this is a hijack scenario, as clicking links in my
    search engines takes me to commercial sites and not my intended destination.

    I have installed and run TrendMicro's 'Hijack This!' and it seems to have
    cleared the problem. Thankfully. They sell systems without a Windows disk
    over here so a format is out of the question.

    Hope you find a solution Victor :)
