My home page keeps changing to greatsearch.biz - - this a site pointing me to spybot sort of software. I "x" out of this and get a page with , amongst other things,"Connected via 156 -" and asks if I want to protect myself - -this latter page has no facility to exit, have to ctrl/ald/del to end task. I have run spybot and adaware and is still happening. Am running a 90 day trial of etrust antivirus and thats not showing anything. Any ideas - - had a similar problem like this on my old PC but spybot sorted. Am new to xp restore, used goback in the past and thought I could restore back to this morning but I can't.

think I've got rid of it - -not quite sure which of the above links did it but it appears tohave gone. When I run hijackthis , and choosing the relevant files (7 of them) it does delete them and they stay deleted. Gonna have to take extra care on this BB I guess.

PS again, thanks to all who had a go here - - watch out for my next problem - - and there will be one.
