browser hijack help

Ok somehow I picked up a bug that I can't get rid of. If I try to go to Hotmail I get redirerected to a search page. The address bar says about blank.
I have Ad-aware 6, spybot, and Hijack this. None of them are helping.
Any other ideas???
Oh and I get these f-ing pop ups saying system infected...no shit.

Get a pop up blocker, clear your history,cookies and cache. Go into your control panel and go to administration tools, services, and right click on windows messenging and go to properties, where it says startup type hit drop down box and go to disabled and hit ok. See what that does for you..

I had something similar where when i tried to go to a website then i was redirected to a search page. Seekseek.com I believe was it. well i just did a search on my computer looking for that name and anything added/modified within the like last month. I was able to find what it was and delete it.

try downloading yahoo spyware bar. that is a pretty good thing for being free.

I had that same thing happen to my old computer and that program took it off and cleaned it. I never had a problem after that.

you need to know what the fuk you are doing to use hyjack this

it is a really really good ,,,and really really strong program ...

it isnt selective when it deletes stuff
if you choose to use it ...read the directions ...and backup the sys first
only remove what guide tells you to

ive seen people wipe main files for thier dos sys on accident
