    I’m thinking of reformatting the entire compy, once I’ve done a backup of the files I have – Funny thing is that there entire workstation at the place I work at is completely firewalled and it still has the same problem.

    Its odd

    Thanks for the idea though πŸ™‚

  3. That could be some sort of spyware… I would suggest getting Lavasoft’s Adaware and Spybot to scan your system. If the computer’s behind a firewall, you might also want to take a look at the firewall’s logs to see if anything’s been trying to contact any strange websites…

    No problem πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the suggestion. πŸ™‚ I’ve followed your advice and downloaded and installed adaware. So far I have 2 ad-ware it seems. I’ve quarantined it. Lets see what happens after that.

    If worst is to come, I’ll just reformat the whole thing …

    Unfortunately for me, when I restarted the computer, the same message still apears. So ad-aware does not seem to pick it up. I could try spybot later on in the evening.

    Worst comes to worst, I’ll just reformat the computer. Its that time of the year already πŸ˜›

  6. omg, who’s ya tech ass?
    it’s definitely NOT A BUG!
    zomg, please ask him/her go find out what’s a BUG actually.
    and probably suggest your comp to fire him/her

    you got your IE title changed, bcoz of some spyware/worms/trojon running, or most probably you installed some jerky IE toolbar.

    check your processes, kill it.
    then look into msconfig + services.msc, check which suspicous startup exe, google it. delete it.

  7. Hi all, installed the Windows Defender and it helps me to detect the vbscript that is running at every boot up and prompting me the changes that is being happened in the registry. It shows me the location in the registry that is being updated by the vb program periodically and it also indicates the path where the file is located.

    Good luck.
