Specs: Windows XP & 7, Core i3 3GHz/ 2GB
I have a problem. Automatically change my browser home page and replacing by unknown search engine. My 5 PC have this kind of problem and every PC have automatically added different search engine. One PC's home page changed by "20.202.10.1.yahoo...................." like this. I tried to remove it manually, then one PC shows 'MLN infected". All of my PC managed by McAfee VSE8.8P2 with latest DAT and MLN.VBS already deleted

How can I solve my problem?? Is that McAfee weakness???

No, it,s not a McAfee weakness.

McAfee's primary purpose is to detect and eradicate viruses and trojans, and the problem you have is neither of those things. What you have is a "Browser Hijack".

You need to use something like "HijackThis" which detects everything that's running on your PC, then post the log file and wait for an expert to advise you.

Can you start by running AdwCleaner
Download AdwCleaner from this link:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
AdwCleaner Usage Instructions:
Using AdwCleaner is very simple. Simply download the program and run it. You will then be presented with a screen that contains a Search and Delete button. The Search button will cause AdwCleaner to search your computer for unwanted programs and then display a log showing the various files, folders, and registry entries used by these programs.
To delete these unwanted programs simply click on the Delete button, which will cause AdwCleaner to reboot your computer and remove the files and registry entries associated with the various adware that you are removing. On reboot, AdwCleaner will display a log showing the files, folders, and registry entries that were removed.
Please include the log in your next reply.

I would like to see the HighJackThis log also.
