This week I downloaded Panda Internet Security 2013.Eversince every time I attemt to go into IE a box "Internet explorer hijack attempt" pops up and I have to tick allow.Sometimes this box pops up 2/3 times.It's driving me mad.I've contacted Panda but the Technical info they want to sort out is beyond my capabilities.Are there any other Panda users out there who have had a similar problem and solved it?If so how please?

clibay welcome.

What decided you on Panda?

Better would be MSE (Microsoft Security Essentials); http://windows.microsoft.com/e.....s-download

Trouble free and totally free

@ clibay

A quick Google search returned results of other people having the same issue as you.

I found one on the bleeping computer forum from a user who had this problem back in 2009 and found a sensible solution:

Posted 18 August 2009 - 09:33 PM

"My problem is fixed!!!

Panda Tech Support finally responded and figured it out to be an add-on to my IE Toolbar.

I have disabled all add ons and that stopped the error messages.

I am now going to re-enable them one by one till I find the offender and will then uninstll it through Control Panel."

This seems to go along with suggestion above by GuiltySpark, and it's a simple was to troubleshoot the problem.

Hope this helps.

I hope the OP finds this info to of help to him.

Thanks to you all for your responses.In the end Someone from Panda remotely accessed my computer (with my permission) and cured it for me.It wasn't an easy fix.
