My damn friend sent me to this site with a porn picture on it and I went to it now my computer is acting all weird...

It inserts http://www.pixpox.com/cgi-bin/click.pl?url= before every address I type in..
and I go and change my homepage to what I usually have it as and it inserts that in there right when I get done...

I have run a virus checker (updated one) and ad-aware and I STILL can not get rid of this...

HOW DO I FIX IT!?!?!?!?!?

My friend says...

" Hmm deleting all temporary internet files, cookies and history would help. They could also check add/remove programs in the control pannel for any programs that might be there that shouldn't..."

You said you ran adaware, but is it an updated version? Make sure you have the newest version, and if you don't, try going to www.pixpox.com (or whatever it is) and seeing if they have an uninstall file. I hate programs like this, they are EVIL :)

Good luck.

eek...i know how this feels...i had a problem with other sites this week.

I put my internet security on Default levels, deleted all temp internet files, deleted all cookies,

ran a program which name I do not remember...I will look when I get home...(it is very similar to ad aware I bet...)

I would also check your Control Panel Uninstall/Install box to see if theres funny things there. It will name the file something like "toolbar - dont uninstall). also goto Start ->Run-> MSConfig to see if anything funny is there...
