McAfee finds Winhost and I quarantine and delete it. I use Firefox and it forces me to a proxy server in Hong Kong.  I have to delete the manual proxy server and go to another connection method such as no proxy.  This lets me work until I shut down.  When I start up again it starts all over again.  I suspect I am getting it from the proxy server,but I don't know how to prvent it.  How can I solve this?

Message was edited by: marcw  The source of the problem seems to be the program dwm.exe, which is loaded on startup.  I went into safe mode and deleted dwm.exe, but it came back on normal restart. on 11/21/10 9:25:49 AM CST
