Persistent home page hijacker

  Busy 13:34 26 Apr 04

Im suffering a porn home page hijacker which refuses to die-it installs an HTML 'help file' in C;windows in the form of a yellow question mark icon and 'start' under it,so when I open IE it springs up.I delete this and a few days later,its back.Spybot S&D and ad-aware dont seem to see it.Any ideas?

I had the same problem, and CWS fixed it, and SpyGuard stops it from happening

After successful removal, to confirm you've gotten rid of the 'hijacker' completely, run a quick online spyware scan at - click here. Click on Open when the 'File download' dialogue box appears. Good luck, G
