I have just had my computer home page ( using Internet Explorer 6) taken over by www.syssecuritysite.com and it will not let me change the home address back to my usual one.
Mozilla, which is my usual browser has no problem. I have had help here before and found it amazing.
I have done a hijackthis log but can't remember how to post it. I have also done 2 'print screen' of the offending page which I have managed to attach. One of them is the base page and the other one superimposes itself when I attempt to go to any other site.
Thanks for any help you may give.

Hi PeterS...

Let's let the malware experts deal with this one.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
