I've been Hijacked
« on: September 28, 2007, 11:35:50 AM »
I tried a proxy from this site, and it caused my Firefox to be hijacked.  No matter where I click, or whay websites I go to, it takes me right back to this page.  I've tried reinstalling firefox, adaware, spybot, hijack this, and malicious software removal tool.  Nothing is working  ???  Can anyone help?

Remove the proxy!
I tell it like it is and that's offensive to those professing knowledge they don't have.

Thanks a lot for your help guys!  Actually I figured it out (sort of)  The proxy was removed, and it was still doing that.  What I ended up having to do was run Firefox in safe mode.  It gave me the option of using all the default Firefox settings.   After doing that, boom, no problem.  Not sure what exactly caused it, but thankfully it's fixed
