Help removing something on Internet Explorer

Sometimes when I load a site, Internet Explorer version 6.02 ran on Windows Xp, transfers me to http://www.ads234.com/ and shows an ad. Then after 20 seconds, it'll transfer me to whatever site I tried to load up originally.

How do I get rid of that?

Just google it. Type in "how to remove ads234.com" on google and you will find the answer.

Download CWShredder and run that if your still stuck.

If you still have probelms after running Adaware and CWShredder, run HiJackThis and post the contents of your log here. All of these app's are freeware and I have them in my sig for downloading

That's funny because I never registered with the site and I see everything without issue.

In any case the dvdtalk thread posted above will help just the same.

the discussion continues further down past the "sign up to see this solution" link and the big blue(?) table.

I have used pestpatrol.com for free tests then, rather than paying, just searched for and deleted each file or registry line individually.

DOH! I never noticed the sign up box before. I guess that's because as soon as hit the page I search for a keyword which breezes right past it to the meat of the thread. Sorry about that. I would have otherwise mentioned where it was on the page. Glad you found it and hope it helps you and edy.
