This site has hijacked my home page on MS Internet Explorer V 6 SP2.
The address the site uses on "Internet Options" is about:blank.
It is attempting to sell antivirus and malware.
How do I get rid of this irritable malware?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Two part reply..

Perform Part 1 then perform Part 2.

If the first two parts don't work, perform the alternate section.

It is suggested that you execute each tool in Normal Mode then in Safe Mode.

If you are using any version of Sun Java that is prior to JRE Version 5.0,
then you are strongly urged to remove any/all versions that are prior to JRE/JSE
Version 5.0.  There are vulnerabilities in them and they are actively being
exploited.
This is most likely why you got infected with malware.

Therefore, it is highly suggested that if there are any prior versions of Sun
Java
to Version 5 on the PC that they be removed and Sun Java JRE/JSE Version 5.0
Update 7
be installed ASAP.

Simple check, look under...
C:\Program Files\Java

The only folder under that folder should be the latest version...

C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07


http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp



Part 1
-----------

Use noahdfear's SmitFraud, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, et. al., removal tool --
SmitRem.exe
http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/click%20counter/click.php?id=1

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic43659.html


Part 2
-----------

Download SmitFraud.exe from the URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/SmitFraud.exe

Execute;  SmitFraud.exe  { Note: You must accept the default of C:\McAfee }
Choose;   Unzip
Choose;   Close

NOTE: You may have to disable your software FireWall or allow WGET.EXE to go
through your
FireWall to enable WGET.EXE to download the needed McAfee related files.

Execute;  c:\mcafee\clean.bat
{ or Double-click on 'Clean Link' in c:\mcafee }

A final report in HTML format called C:\mcafee\Normal_ScanReport.HTML or
C:\mcafee\Safe_ScanReport.HTML will be generated.  At the end of the scan, it
will be
displayed in your browser (Opera, FireFox or Internet Explorer).  However, if
you are using
WinXP, Win2K or Win2003 your system will be left in a state where you will have
to manually
shutdown/reboot the PC.  On Win9x/ME platforms the report will not be shown in
your bowser
but your PC will automatically be shutdown.  It is suggested that you move the
report out of
c:\mcafee before performing another scan.

It would be best to scan in both Safe Mode and in Normal Mode and save a copy of
the HTML
report for each session.


ALTERNATE:

Secured2K's SpyAxe, PSGuard, Smitfraud, Sinnaka and Alemod removal tool.

Re: sysnetsecurity.com

I finally downloaded a $10 spyware program called "Spynuker" which fixed the
problem
Thanks for your input. For what it's worth - I use Mozilla Firefox as my
primary web browser but sometimes use MSIE v 6.
This problem was on my laptop.
All is well now.
