Okay this is my first post, I hope someone can help me. I am not going to lie but before I continue this may not be safe for work.

I have a 'pictures and video' site that I visit regularly, I have never had any problems as far as spyware or anything is concerned being downloaded from this site. However recently when I go to look at a picture my browser will sometimes be redirected to first www.look-casino.com and than to another 'picture' site that is filled with pictures that send me to page after page of the same thing. Sometimes it will send me to google and search for pages about transvestites or gay porn. I have scanned with Adaware, Hijack This, and Spybot along with avg and they might find a cookie or something and than it is deleted and it doesn't fix the problem. And when I google look-casino all I get are poker pages and pages about the new bond flick. PLEASE HELP

You may want to print out these instructions for reference, since you will have to restart your computer during the fix.

Please download FixWareout


Save it to your desktop and run it. Click Next, then Install, then make sure "Run fixit" is checked and click Finish. The fix will begin; follow the prompts. You will be asked to reboot your computer; please do so. Your system may take longer than usual to load; this is normal.

When your system reboots, follow the prompts. Afterwards, Hijack This will launch. Close Hijack This, and click OK to proceed. )

If you have connection problems after this

* Go to Control Panel. - If you are using Windows XP's Category View, select the Network and Internet Connections category. If you are in Classic View, go to the next step .
· Double-click the Network Connections icon
· Right-click the Local Area Connection icon and select Properties.
· Hilight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click the Properties button.
· Be sure Obtain DNS server address automatically is selected.
· OK your way out.

* Go to Start > Run and type in cmd
· Click OK.
· This will open a commad prompt.
· Type or copy and paste the following line in the command window:

ipconfig /flushdns
· Hit Enter
· Exit the command window

Do that before you restart.

At the end of the fix, you may need to restart your computer again.

Finally, please post the contents of the logfile C:\fixwareout\report.txt, along with a new Hijack This log.

If you get an Autoexec nt error do the following
