Specs: Windows XP
Ok... I have been having problems with my computer as of late... I have the problem where all my searches get redirected on both yahoo and google.. Ive read posts here about downloading Malwarebytes and Hijackthis, but it will not let me open their websites, I also can not update my Anti Virus or Spyware tools, When I try to scan for disk errors it says "Windows was unable to complete the disk check" It seems like anything that can help me get rid of what I have it wont let me open or update please someone help!

I h8 2b the 1 2 tell you this.... You've been hit. If possible go to another terminal and dl malbytes or Kaspersky Int. Sec. '09. (MAKE SURE you also dl their manual updates then as well. Otherwise you're just wasting time.) Disconnect your system from the network, kill your system restore (you lose all previous restore points but it's a fair trade-off in the end.), and begin your install. After you're loaded tell it to upd8 from wherever you've got you're manual upd8 @. Then let her go. Some toolz that are good in pin-pointing malware can be found in SysInternals(http://download.sysinternals.com/Files/SysinternalsSuite.zip). Just don't get cocky. You can do some damage to your system with that suite if you're not careful. Good Luck

Sorry I need some clarification as to what you want me to do... Im set up on a small home network with just 3 computers total.. If I follow, you want me to go to 1 of the other computers and download Malwarebytes on that computer? How does that help me clean the one with the problems? or is it all connected? Just clarify please thanks alot for the help
