  1. I noticed my computer running slower than normal and then it began playing audio commercials and what sounded like talk radio. In addition, I began to be redirected to other web sites when doing a search and had to bring a web site up as many as 3 or 4 times before the redirect was overriden and I went to where the link was trying to take me. I asked a number of techs and no one could help as it never seemed to happen when anyone was looking at my system. Internet explorer kept saying it was closed and even while I was in the process of downloading a file. It also would not load if I left my computer on for extended periods. I managed to google my symptoms and similar advice for my problem as noted here was on the site along with a recommendation for a malware/spyware program download (free by the way) and of course I was hesitant but eventually did it. When I performed a full scan, the program discovered 14 files being infected and included the “security.Hijack” issue, along with a browser help object trojan “Trojan.bho” in a number of files. Once the dowload ans scan was completed, it quaranteened and deleted all of the offenders and my computer was back to normal again! I recommend this to anyone having similar problems.
