Windows 7: My IE 10 browser has been hijacked

My IE 10 browser has been hijacked

Thank goodness I have the Chrome browser.
My IE will not open pages.
When I place my cursor in the address bar and enter any address (e.g.: google.com), the cursor jumps back to the beginning of the address and nothing happens.

I have done a full scan with MSE: nothing found
Ran ADW cleaner and I am getting a "clean" report.

Thank you.

To be honest, that doesn't sound typical of malware, more a problem with IE. Try the following:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output from the command window once it finishes.

More detail: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

SFC reports no problems

As the subject line states there were no problems found when I ran the command sfc /scannow.

I just clicked on the gear icon after launching IE and the "about IE" is grayed out so I am not even sure what version of IE I am working with.

Again, thanks for your help.

My IE 10 is now working

I am not sure how my IE got messed up but while patiently waiting for a reply, I clicked on Internet Options-->Advanced-->clicked reset button. I am now using IE but won't mark this issue as solved until I hear from you.

Download DDS from one of these links:
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool. <--Use IE to run this
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <--- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next post.
