Some spyware and norton are probably your best friends right now. You probably can't download a spyware app so you will need to go to another pc and download on a flash drive and install it on your pc from there. Chances are, if you already have norton or any other virus protection, those sites are blocked to keep you from running updates.

hijackthis should fix it. Sounds like a browser hijacker, just run that, run the analyzer and it will usually find the problem

some people are like slinkies; they're completely useless, but still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

DON'T USE THAT IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING. You can hose your system if you haul off and start deleting stuff.

Post your log from MBAM and we'll see where to go from there.

Open MBAM and click the LOGS tab, scroll/open the most recent one and copy/paste in your reply.
