Hijacked

It appears my son had been places he shouldn't have been. My browser has been
hijacked by favourlinks.com. I have run Microsoft Antisypware, Spybot, and
Ad-Aware and they find nothing, plus Norton AntiViris. It appears the
browser is first sent to rudesexlinks.com and then to favourlinks.com. It is
the favourlinks.com page that comes up.

Any help would be appreciated... thanks in advance.

Hi Jill, I have not found anything to indicate that either of these sites
contain active spyware.You should be able to reset things by opening MSAS and
going to Advanced Tools>System Explorers>IE Settings and click on restore
default settings.Once that is done you can reset to whatever homepage you had
before.Let us know how you get on.

Mike... I use Spybot and Ad-Ware... have never tried Spyware Blaster. They
have taken care of all the problems except for this last one...

Thanks Mark... I will take a look at Ewido.
