have you turned off system restore, reboot and turn back on system restore?

Don't know your details, but if the above don't work try click here and download and run kill2me.

It's a common hijacking program at the moment.

thanks all, but i think it was gandalfs' idea to turn off system restore that finally cracked it. not sure why though, but i'ts back to normal , for now. cheers.

If, after repeated attempts, a trojan will not clear it is probably in the restore files and no cleaner will remove it as they are locked by default. Turning restore on and off usually sorts it.

ok, i have spyblaster, and i am able to keep google as my home page, but for how long. what, specifically, do i need to do to stop this happening again, and can i find out what is causing it in the first place. i would rather remove it that just block it.
