You launch your Web browser, but your homepage has changed. You type in a Web address, but the browser sends you to a site you\'re never heard of. Whenever you try to go to a new destination, it sends you right back, sometimes covering your screen in pop-up ads. If this sounds familiar, you\'ve got a serious problem on your hands. It\'s called browser hijacking, and it\'s something you need to fix right away. What is a Browser Hijacker? b> A browser hijacker is a type of computer virus that targets your Web browser. Some hijacking programs try to make you click on bogus pop-up ads that spawn incessantly. Others are purely malicious, designed only to cause trouble. Infected browsers sometimes redirect you to pornographic websites, while others may take you to fake search engines. Even if a site looks legitimate, if you didn\'t tell your browser to go there, don\'t click on anything. b> How Did I Get Hijacked? b> Browser hijackers disguise themselves in various ways. Pop-up ads are a common infection point for browser hijackers, which is why virtually all Web browsers come with aggressive pop-up blocking protection. Ads promising free electronics or large cash prizes are common sources of browser hijackers as well. Some hijackers hitch a ride on bogus software downloads or hyperlinks. In the future, don\'t download files from unknown sources, and don\'t click on any ads that sound too good to be true. Fake Security Software b> If your browser issues are accompanied by security pop-ups from a desktop security program, be careful. Some current browser hijackers masquerade as security software, as well as infecting your browser. These programs are particularly dangerous, as they often camouflage themselves to look like a legitimate software program. Use your common sense before clicking on a security alert. If the security program is not one that you have installed or that you have ever seen before, or if there are spelling errors within the alert, don\'t touch it. b> How To Get Rid of a Hijacker b> Browser hijackers can usually be sorted out by running a full system scan with your anti-virus software. Make sure that your anti-virus software is up to date before running your scan. Even after the virus is removed, you may need to reset some of your browser settings, particularly your homepage. If the browser hijacker made a mess of your settings, it may be faster for you to perform a clean reinstall of your browser software.

A YouTube account makes it possible to upload and share videos and to create customized pages. Creating a YouTube account is nearly effortless and requires only an email address, a password and a username. If you have different usernames and passwords for different websites, it can be easy to forget just what combination unlocks your YouTube account. Fortunately, you can recover your YouTube login information even if you can\'t remember your username. Hope this helps.

Hi, I am setting up a website but i cant use my dynamic IP address because when i type my ip address in bowser its login into my ADSL 2+ Router . How could i divert it into my computer if my LAN IP Adress...


you need to let your router / modem router know what server will be exposed to the DMZ (example: assuming that 192.168.1.20 will be the webserver) that will redirect all the incoming traffic in port 80 the the 192.168.1.20 IP address and don't forget to open the ports in which the server will listen for connections. ( example: port 80 is http and port 443 is https )

if you have a dynamic IP you should consider using something like NO-IP.org or dyndns.org they will keep your dynamic IP up to date everytime it changes without you to have do the updates manually.

When i try and login to facebook i am immediately redirected to bing.com. How do I stop that??


Hi,

This is because your browser is not able to find the address that you typed in the address bar, thus it redirected to bing.com which might be your default search engine. Make sure have you tried typing with the www like www.facebook.com ? If yes, but it still showing the same redirection, try to change your DNS server from your internet connection. Double click on the Local Area Connection from your icons in the lower right corner of your desktop, choose properties and on the general tab, click on Internet protocol, TCP/IP then click properties. Instead of obtained, use the opendns as follows:

Primary: 208.67.222.222
Alternative: 208.67.220.220

Apply and click OK.

Then open a new browser, clear your cache and then try again.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

This is generally a server problem on their end, and not a problem on your end or with your computer. Give it a couple days and they should have it cleared up.
