Thread: Being redirected to btcar.com

  1. #1
    I have some new bit of scumware on my computer that is redirecting me to a site called btcar.com. Anyone have any idea what it might be and how to get rid of it? Thanks

    What antispyware are you running , never heard of that one . Browser hijack I'm guessing but easy to fix I'm sure .


    Have you tryed an online scan , like Trend Micro or the like ? Giant or a similar antisptware has a option to revert back to default settings .


    I'm thinking you have to tighting up your anti malware programs , sounds easy I know but I'm surprised that Ive never heard of that btcar. cookie or what ever you what to call it .


    After some thought it would piss me off to have to suffer with the malware crap .

    Hijackthis may be of some help . I'll be honest and admit I don't understand all the entries but still : http://www.hijackthis.de/

    I have run Trend, which did find a lot of garbage but left this, also ad-aware and spybot. I have also noticed a lock.exe file popping on and off now and then. It's located in C:\program files\internet explorer. Is this a valid windowns file?

    I can't get to the site peat moss. Might not be the site, but whatever is on this computer. I have noticed that whenever I try to visit any site like Trend or Panda I either get re-directed or it simply will not load. I'll run hi-jack this and see what I can find and then try the site again.

    I'll post a hi-jact this log on a couple of minutes. I have looked at the log and didn't notice anything to get too upset about, but I might have missed something.
