    Question

    Another possible solution is to simply empty your father's temporary internet files folder. You never know what can be in there. Sometimes viruses could find there way into there and all you have to do is empty it and then they're gone. You never know. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I found the information in this link to be helpful.

    Hijacking Help

    I renamed the .hta file on someone's computer at work and it did the trick.

    Thanks Nicholas. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I've never heard of any of that.

    The internet is such a great place for information but it sure is a field day for unscrupulous, lousy predators. Seems there is always somebody looking for a way to use somebody.

    I could strangle whoever came up with the pop-up idea. Sometimes I can't even get a password or a search typed in because of their interference.

    Thanks, everyone. I'll try whatever is recommended. Will update as soon as I get rid of that irritating chinese website.

    Sad to say, my dad is great at chinese (I'm chinese but I'm not too good in the language...shame shame) but he knows nuts about hijackers. He came back from work, insisting that there's nothing wrong because his colleague said that it's NOT a virus. I had to look very serious and tell him "No, not having a virus doesn't mean we don't HAVE a problem."

    LOL [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] ...shh...don't let me dad hear this...the laughter I mean...hehehe...He will not speak to me for days if he knows I'm laughing at him! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Cindy - I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. Plus my dad's Chinese too [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] Anyhow, I wrote a post about how to get rid of it awhile back. You'll have to look for it since it's time for me to jump on the freeway to get home. It's a complicated bit of spyware/adware - took me 3 hours to figure it out, and has numerous steps. It's not an easy one. I definetly posted this year about it, but that's all I remember. Might want to re-post the link if you find it.

    Thanks, michelle. I've managed to solve the problem with lots of researching and trying. It's a change in the registry which I didn't dare to touch. It took you 3 hours? It took me more that 3 days! LOL

    And THANKS to everyone here. You guys/gals have been GREAT.
