Problems after update from MSN on XP
 
Hope this is correct NG, please advise correct one if I'm in wrong place.

Recently been to Window updater and several thing downloaded includeing IE
7.

I now have a new look browser and got a Security bar with several functions
as well.
The browser as a mind of its own, getting lots of pages appearing tryying to
get me to install clean up s/w etc. They tell me I've got lots of problems,
virouses etc.
(Also getting lots of pop ups at the left hand bottom corner of screen
giving security alerts.)
I have Nortons Security running and up to date and it reports none of this.

In IE when I click Home it goes to my set home page (my ISP) for a breif
moment then it changes to a Malwhare site.

It might of course not all be the Windows Update but what shall I do please?
Going back to a restore piont does not help.

It sounds to me like the machine has been compromised in someway. You
can go to alt.comp.anti-virus for some help as well as getting posts
here too.

Run a spysweep program. You have spyware and browser hijackers. Spybot is
good www.safer-networking.org or ad aware (cant remember the site) If that
doesnt work d/l hijack this and post your hijack log on a tech website for
analysis (www.geekstogo.com)
Hope this helps
