Hi. I had exactly the same problem (i think) and every time you tried to open internet it took you to a bogus web page "iesafepage" or something like that. The comp in question had spyware doctor installed, but every time I tried to run that, it froze up. I eventually was able to run spyware doctor sucsessfuly by starting the comp in safe mode (hold F8 key as comp starts up) and running sw doctor. This found about three trojans and fixed them. I then downloaded free adaware and run that, and that found some other things as well. Eventually all was well again. This worked for me with the help of spyware doctor, but it might work with another program. Hope this helps, regards.
