Home-page hijack

  degs 21:23 12 Oct 03

My home page (btopenworld) is always being replaced by a search page. I run Browser Hijack Blaster which offers me the option to reset my home page but how do I get rid of the thing that is causing it? I have Zone Alarm running along with Norton and taken to running Sky-bot every night after logging off. I also have Ad-aware but this freezes when it reaches my system restore files. It is driving me MAD!!

If you give me the search page, I will give you instructions for manual removal. But when posting nasty links such as ones full of spyware, always split it up like the following, so someone doesnt click on it by mistake....

Re: adaware, disable archive scanning, this may solve your problem.
