IE redirecting multiple times

  Dutchy11 23:46 10 Jan 04


I guess I have been to a dodgy site as when I launch IE the browser trys to point to a web site "metadirect". The actual address appears to be a very long string of repeating the same address and causes IE to go nito some sort of loop. The addrress starts with a .dll file in by c/windows/system32 folder.

It's not made itself my "home page" and this is still ok (from looking at tools / internet options). The origin seems to be in the system32 folder. I have both AVG and sygate installed so I'm not sure how this got its foot in the door - but its a pain. I run XP am writing this via another profile - as launching IE on the other profile is not possible due to the redirect.

Any ideas what I should do to rid myself of this ?

Any help appreciated.

If you know which Dll file try moving it to another folder
