    Someone has asked for my help with their machine.
    It appears it has some how got a link to an unsavoury site when they right click on a webpage (where you see the save as, save image as, etc etc)
    My first thought is a hijacker, but They have run "Spybot", "Ad-Aware", "Norton Antivirus", "Spywareblaster" and "CWShredder" and nothing has been found (all updated and shredder was most recent download.

    This is on a Windows 98 machine..

    The only thing I can think of is its going to have been added somewhere in the registry.

    any ideas ?


    (oh and hello, I'm obviously new here, not new to boards but new here)

    Wouldn't that only allow you to set how or what opens a particular file type?

    Not as in this case add an internet short cut to the right click menu ?

    I know you can do things like add "edit" to a HTML file and make it open with notepad would it be possible to add "Link to Site" and make it open with the extension for explorer plus the site addresss? - I but would that make it appear when view a page and not just clicking on a a file ?

    Does hijack this show the whole registry or just running programs?

    Run hijack this and its spotted it -

    08- Extra content menu item: >>>> Movies <<<<<< javascript:{document location =

    I've left the link off for obvious reasons.

    Does hijack this allow you to highlight that and remove it ?

    (suppose I could download it and have a look)
