I am trying to resolve an issue when "Search42.com" flashes up whenever I try and load a webpage. "Morwell Search Engine" and an adult dating page also flash up. But.....

When trying to run hijack this the McAfee anitvirus flashes up and says that it has found a virus at "C:/Documents and Settings/Nigel/Locals-1/Temp/Temporary Directory 4 f..." and that it is "W32/generic.worm!p2p". This prevents hijack this running. When trying to copy hijack this from its downloaded folder to the desktop I get the message "The system cannot find the specified file". I have tried downloading Hijack This from many sources and the problem persists.

Thanks for your help

Try downloading HijackThis here and save it directly to a folder on your desktop (create one for it). Then close McAfee antivirus. Run HijackThis and choose to do the scan and save the log. Close HijackThis and enable/run McAfee antivirus again. Go online and post the HijackThis log here.

PS: did you check McAfee for any updates? They should have fixed that problem regarding HijackThis.
