Currently I am getting an intermitent hijack to http://2awm.com/file/indigo.html. It doesn't actually bring up a webpage usually, however sometimes it redirects to various sex sites.

This has been going on for about 2 days and just today I started getting dummy application popups asking me to install popup blockers - I forget the name, something commander.

Also just now an icon was installed on my desktop called 'Best Online Casinos' that points to http://www.casinopal...sourceid=102174

Here is a current HijackThis log.

SpyBot S&D has been run several times with the latest update and fails to fix this problem.

I have done some searching and found some references to the 2awm.com domain however, it is always for a different web address and hijack this always has an 016 entry with the address - no such luck here.

I keet reading the log and I found the mess.exe entry and the taskngr.exe. I will get rid of those and see what happens.

Are there any other entries in that log that look troubling?

P.S. While typing this I got a message asking me to install PopUp Commander. This is the thing I mentioned above.

im a bit new to hijackThis but i figured it out quite fast...
i have the axact same problem as you, but still i couldn't fix it.... i dont get it.... GRRRR

i found in my hijackthis-log an entry named:<<015 - trusted zone: http://* >>
so i typed it in at my iexplorer and it led me to the site 2awm.com/file/indigo.html

so i thought: i got you, sucker.... but if i try to "Fix checked" it keeps on appearing in the log/hijack scan! WTF

I was able to completely get rid of my problems so if you post your HiJack This log I will take a look at it and see what you still haven't removed.
