Hi xaxamimi...

Because this problem can be caused by a malware infection, let's make sure that isn't the case here.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions found there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. 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.

I have seen this issue earlier and think that the solution was also posted here.


There are two files in the patch. Unzip the files and then run the first one and if the issue persists, then go for the second.
