On various sites when taking a link to another part of the site, this search page comes up called NKVD whose address is click here or click here and after you close it another window opens whose address is click here I have blocekd them both in Zone Alarm bit this just results in a window sayins "This page cannot be displayed" - I have searched the registry and deleted references to the above. Spybot Search & Destroy doesn't find any problems ? - I can't even download antivirus software because this "site" interferes "
Grateful for any help please

Try Ad-aware click here

Update before running.

Hi Vog

thanks for the suggestion - tried it on thelink to lavasoft but as soon as I try to down load a new window comes up which although blocked by Zone Alarm has the click here address

Look for a file called HOSTS (no file extension).

In Windows 2000 and XP it would be in

C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc


or in earlier Windows

C:\windows

Rename it to hosts.txt and restart your PC.

Hi Vog

Thanks very much - renaming hosts worked = then I could download Adaware and then AVG antivirus

Thanks once again
