    Think I may have a virus problem but Norton cannot find it. Please help.
    I have three machines networked, one having the internet connection and the others sharing it. My problem lies with the two sharing machines. Whenever I use IE7 to look at a website ending in .co.uk I get sent to a random (usually 'exotic' website). Now this only happens on .co.uk, not any other ending and it does not happen on the machine that is directly connected to the net.
    Any ideas?

    I have run spybot and Windows Defender and also Adaware just for the sake of it. Nothing, still the same problem. I have noticed though that in the status bar it flashes up http://jupk.com/ which looks like a very dodgy search engine. Does this help?
