    Hi folks

    Can anyone tell me where I go in the registry editor to change the settings
    for Internet Explorer as it has been hijacked.

    Can someone also tell me what the value should be set at?

    Thanks
    Sean

    It's not any particular registry setting for IE is it?

    Usually if you have been hijacked, then something like the log file from
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html
    HijackThis will list the registry entries.

    See the many HijackThis posts where the logs are posted.

    Hi Sean,
    The value has to bet set to 0 (zero)
    Your system will work fine after a reboot.

    Here is a little hint for you,

    Registry exported to a 51.5MB file, 511599 lines.

    InternetExplorer - appears on 20 lines.

    Internet Explorer - 2203 lines.

    They are in the registry. Start>run>regedit {enter}
    Look for the key: iexplore_faulty

    That should get you on the road, mate.

    You _do_ realize that Frank is pulling your leg, right?

    It WAS funny, though, Frank. =)
