Hi, my compliments for this great site and i hope you can help me with this.
When i open internet Explorer my starting page has changed into
http://www.yoursecuritysystem.com/. It gives the message that my private info is collected by [email protected] When i read some other topics on this forum i decided to download "Hijack This". I did a scan and got rid of some spyware programs. But the starting page is still the same. Am i already clean from the "[email protected]" or is it still there and do i need to clean up even better? How can i get my own starting page back again (it's still in my settings though). Who's behind this "yoursecuritysystem.com" website anyway? I have a Norton firewall protection so i was really surprised when i got this spyware. Thanks in advance.

Hi per! Welcome to G2G!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
