During the past week I have experienced what I believe to be an Internet Explorer browser hijacker program. More specifically, when searching the web, my IE will take me to an online casino webpage. Also, I often receive a "Windows File Protection" message on my desktop advising me that my computer has been infected with spyware. I believe this is also some form of malicious program.

I have used Spybot S/D, Ad Aware, Norton Anti-Virus, Panda Anti-Virus (shareware version), and SpyHunter. These programs have consistently uncovered a "Viagra" program as well as a few others. Although they eradicate these files and cookies, they seem to reappear and contaminate my system.

I have exhausted all means to rectify this problem. Please consider this a request for assistance. I have taken the time to run and log HijackThis for reference

Thanks, in advance, for any assistance.

I have found the solution to my problem in an earlier thread in this forum which provided a link to another page. Regardless, thanks for the opportunity to reach out for assistance. It's good to know help is a click away.
