If you recognize this page and you got rid of it, skip this intro and go straight to the star (*).
My computer has been infected by malware which redirects 404-page errors to a different site.
That site is made by funfunsearch.com and is hijacking any browser I use that displays a 404-page error.
Even if I just make my own .htm containing a thousand words and then "404", it will redirect me to that page.
As a result, not only 404-page errors are redirecting me, but any website that has "404" anywhere on the htm (even inside colorcoding tags it will redirect me)
This is getting highly annoying because I can't play any browser game that has 404 in colortags or image names or text.
If anybody has any information about this hijack, I would appreciate it.
My prnt screen button is damaged, but I found another example, which is exactly the same as the page I get at this computer.
This is what I already tried: (so don't give me these programs if you really have read this post)
-Hijackthis (latest from trend micro)
-Norton (the whole serie of *** of them)
-Trend Micro's whole arsenal of programs
-Hitman Pro 2 (don't tell me it's spyware or I'll kick you in the face)
-System restore (WinXP Standard program)
-SuperAntiSpyware (is a different one than SUPERAntispywaretool)
Friends of me even gave me programs that they paid for and they still didn't do what we paid for!
I am not a noob at removing malware, I have years of experience and am up-to-date with the newest types of attacking.
The current programs, I think, just aren't working anymore for these new attacks.
I'm also not a noob at preventing infections, so don't go tell me that I need to remove limewire (cuz I don't have it at all).
If somebody would have experience with deleting this crapware, your help is most welcome.
As you can see, I tried an enormous amount of programs and I am dead sure that there is no way to remove it, unless to re-install the OS.
I still hope for a solution other than reinstalling, because my mobo's IDE sockets are broken, so I can't add a cd/dvd-drive. (and mounting an XP installationdisk won't work in DOS, right )
with geeky greets
I already followed the steps that are in: http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html
The only help I could possible get is from somebody who KNOWS THIS PROBLEM PERSONALLY AND ALREADY GOT RID OF IT.
No, I'm not sorry for using caps, it's a dead-serious sentence that NEEDS to be in capslock, or nobody ever understands it.
