    When my windows xp system starts up, internet explorer tries to connect
    to the web page http:63.246.131.130/secur.html
    I've got all the xp updates installed, Norton 2005 updated and spybot.
    I've removed most programs from msconfig but can't get rid of this.
    Also i've stopped programs from running in the reg /HKLM

    Any idead please.

    open the registry and search for the IP. Delete all entries.

    "I've removed most programs from msconfig but can't get rid of this."

    Then it must be opening with something that you have not removed from
    msconfig, remove one thing at a time until it stops. If it still does not
    stop you could always do a clean install.

    Hello Jim,
    Sounds to me that it may be a browser hijacker. Download
    the Bazooka Spyware Scanner. http://www.kephyr.com/spywarescanner/index.html
    It is freeware. Also it does NOT fix anything it finds. However, when you
    click
    on what it finds you are taken to the kphyr.com site and instructions for
    manual
    removal of that particular object. Most of the removals involve sometimes
    extensive edits of the registry. I have used it may times and it works when
    other removal tools may miss a particular object. Spybot search and destroy,
    spyware blaster and bazooka working together will usually keep the system
    clean. You may want to disable system restore so the scanners can scan
    those files also. Then enable it again when finished scanning.
    Good Luck

    Tad bit overkill isn't it?

    Most drastic thing I would do is change browsers.

    Between Opera and my hosts file I can't get to the website mentioned.
    Opera cause it doesn't like the format of the link and the hosts file
    cause it's telling me I really don't need to go there.
