I read through the FAQ
I have been using (and contributed to Spybot S & D) for over a year, and all updates are current.
Also just tried HijackThis and although it identified the problem (and removed it), it seems to reappear.
Essetially, whenever I launch an IE browser window (IE V6.0 for a PC), my home page redirects to a search portal.


Thank you in advance!

We need a closer look at what's happening.
Please post your Hijack this log into a reply here.
Be wary of strong drink. It may make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss!

I hope, it may help for the general solution:
I had the same problem with http://bigbr.cc and a redirection... (I tried the ad-aware. spybot and CWShredder with no success.
Finally I found some new files in system32 and removed them:
cidft.dll 766
cidpoq32.dll 766
gupd.dll 766
icnfe.dll 766
icqrt.dll 766
icvbr.dll 766
msbar.exe 187 357
mtjpgb.dll 34
mtjpgh.dll 17 637
mtwirl.dll 15 360
nthst32.dll 2
sdfup.dll 766
wecxg32.dll 766
xcwer32.dll 766
zxmsn.dll 766
And the Notepad.exe was changed, I replaced with the correct one using http://www.spywarein...n/winfiles.html
and the problem did not reappear.
