Hi I'm having a problem. Internet explorer is starting on its own many times a day. Sometimes it opens to Google. Other times it is opening to this site
Http://gozo.houa.org/index.php?kora=ose but no page comes up just a bunch of charactors in black writing , single line . I've tried adaware and spybot search and destroy and it removed some stuff but didn't fix the problem. I've searched the registry for that web address and it isn't found. I ran my virus scanner norton and a online virus scanner a few things were removed. The cusor is also changing to the working icon ,or in other words the mouse pointer briefly changes now and then, when nothin is being done. I ran hijackthis and there is a gopher entry that comes back don't know if that has anything to do with it. By the way I'm on vista premium 32 bit with internet explorer 7. I'm afraid there may be an unknown virus or spyware.

from,
Jeff

I went to that page and ran the programs it said and they said I had trojan.bho, adwar.trymedia, rbot.ld. It seems clean , the mouse isn't changing to the working icon and that web site with internet explorer starten on its own, isn't popping up.
I posted to the hijackthis forum my log, but no one has said everthing is clean and there are 18 views on the hijacthislogfile. I did have some mistakes on it my profile has it has windows 98 when i know have vista, and I, mispelled one of the viruses as rbot.d when it should be rbot.ld

Thanks,
Jeff
