Can anyone help here.
My IE is being redirected to wxx.sweepstakes.com
I have got the latest updates for Spybot S&D and also I have been using Lavasoft's Adaware and also Norton Internet security. Running these does get rid of the problem, In fact the problem looked solved when I ran Spybot but i ran the others to make sure.
In other words my IE will go to the correct homepage but within 10 mins my IE is redirected back to wxx.sweepstakes.com so there is something hidden that I need to get rid of.
I have made several searches of the internet but without any luck.
Can anyone offer advise or is this truely a "new" threat :blush:
