    Default search & destroy was "hijacked"!!

    My home page was hijacked by httpd.apache.org ....and when I regained my home page by editing browsers in spy blaster I can no longer activate s&d!!
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled with the same consequence. Still can't activate s&d!! Is there a patch for my dilema?? Can you do a remote scan??
    I can't run windows xp pro in safe mode either, won't activate
    Regards diablo

    Default editing browsres

    In spy blaster ...tools ...there is a list of browsers used. I edited the unfamiliar ones and recovered Inter Explorer again. But can't run windows xp pro in safe mode or acxtivate s&d

    Hello.

    By your description it would appear that by editing the browsers in SpywareBlaster (without addressing the malware) the hijack only appeared to be resolved and now you have other problems.

    Please follow these instructions.
    BEFORE you post a log, and who will advise you. Preliminary Steps

    Start a topic here:
    Malware Forum

    Someone will then take a look at the system as soon as available and advise you.
