Look for a file called "hosts" (without any extensions) in the windows folder and look what is inside this file (with a text editor).

Normaly it should only contain some explaination text.

This file can be used to redirect IP to another adress like this:

127.0.0.1 localhost

127.0.0.1 0-ol1oiz-xolxii1-oxli10ozl1l1-o-l-11-iizxp-l-0o-oll11iz0oil-ol.com
127.0.0.1 000freexxx.com
127.0.0.1 0190-dialer.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.0.liveadvert.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.00.liveadvert.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.01.liveadvert.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.02.liveadvert.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.03.liveadvert.com
127.0.0.1 08.185.87.04.liveadvert.com

If this feature is not used you should delete all entries, hope your problem can be solved with this.

best regards

Use "CWShredder" together with "HijackThis" will help eliminating all of your problems. But please be aware that this can also cause your system to unstable or even stop working if you delete any important item instead of Spyware.

Before you begin, you have to turn of system restore if you are using Windows XP. Then use these tools to check Spyware of your system. Read every step carefully and pay attention every time you try to delete any item.

CWShredder 1.56.2 (About 133 KB) https://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe

HijackThis 1.97.7 (About 157 KB) https://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/hijackthis.zip

Ya. Talking about spyware. I have some experience just last week. I was wodering why my tray icon consists of stange icons (2 in total) shown some progress in %. I bring up the close program dialoge box (ctrl-alt-del) and killed all the task. Disconnect from internet. Do a search in system registry using the name shown in 'close program' dialoge. Then I was able to locate all the entry that had them run automatically each time I start windows. I was able to locate where the spy hide in my HD and prepare a cemetery for them.

in my experience iexplorer is quite vulnerable to these types of attacks. usually i just do a reinstall of windows when such things start to happen. i know that this might not be the most elegant option available.

but i have come up with a better solution. i always keep a couple of other browsers. whenever iexplorer starts to do things like this i start using the other browsers. then if a fix in the registry or an ADAWARE search cant fix the problem i do a clean install of windows when i get the time.

i say just leave iexplorer and install some other browser. or u can fix your registry. did u make a checkpoint for system restore?? if yes then just simply do a system restore. that might be the easiest of all the options

check out if there is a .dll that has strange name, 30KB, most recent modified datetime, in windows\system32\. delete it then edit register file in sofware->microsoft>internet explorer->main. you'll see the links.

btw, maybe that .dll is not allowed deleted, use task manager to kill explorer.exe, then cmd get into windows\system32\ to delete it.

Actually, the links I provided is used to be work, it is the official page of the developer of these tools. But now it down with unknown reason. Sorry that I didn't check it before let you know. I think the page you see may come from one of your spyware, not from the link itself.

Anyway, you can use this link instead, https://www.softpedia.com/public/cat/10/17/10-17-150.shtml (CWShredder and HijackThis) or https://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=4086&file=3&evp=6742c4ccda2599a3d6c5901960cc6e24 (CWShredder Only). There are 100% save and work. These sites also include many other tools to fight with spyware.

well in that case i recommend that u run system restore. that is if u have made a checkpoint before. or else just do a clean install of windows.
