    I have been looking at PC Worlds webpage and when I click a link to software
    I am moved to a Canadian Pharmacy webpage...
    It works fine when I use Firefox but not when I use IE6!

    Any thoughts?

    ShiftZZ, download the latest v1.99 version of HijackThis

    Important: Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
    You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on
    C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it HJT.

    Move HijackThis.exe into this folder as you do not want the HijackThis
    backup logs in the Temp folder that should be cleaned out periodically or
    all over your Desktop.

    When you run HijackThis from C:\HJT folder by double clicking on it and have
    it "Fixed checked" it will create a backup file of modifications to use if
    restore is necessary.

    Post your hijackThis log in a support forum:

    Yes, a browser hijacker has probably installed on your system. Read
    though the othere posts here and you will see instructions for
    downloading HijackThis. You will also find URL's for vaious HJT forums
    to send your log files to, after you do a scan. It's more than likely
    going to be a fairly simple fix. It is worth mentioning that Firefox is
    a step in the right direction to avoiding spyware problems.
