My head is done in!! My browser was hijacked a couple of days ago. I think it may be new, as Spybot, Pest Patrol or Symantic(all updated) can't rid me of it!

No matter what I do "http://ssearch.biz/?wmid=1010" pops up on browser start-up. Also the back/forward arrows are ghosted-out! Even a sweep of the Reg does not throw up any reference to it! Not even IE Doctor can change the home page!!

I don't want to re-install XP, as this was done just 10 days ago.

Please can anyone help??

Dave. :gack:

Good News! Just rid myself of this prob!!

Run Spybot and choose "Advanced Mode", "Tools" & check "IE Tweaker". Check all options. Run Search& Destroy and...........Bob's your uncle. Or aunty, if he's a cross-dresser!!

Try this fix from
http://adwareaway.com/ssearchbiz.htm
Download the program and run all checks on Adware and trojans and hijacks.
