Porn Pop up - web home page pirate sites - spam

I have problems with my win 98 site.
First
I have a home page which is my web site but this regularly gets replaced by search pages the last one being click here. I replace this in the default home page with my own but it keeps cropping up which is a nuisence. Any ideas how to keep this from happening.
Second
There is a pop up porn window called Hot_Kiss.exe which has come back again. It inserts itself into the widows directory and advertises a porn site when windows boots up. If I delet it straight away it goes for a while but when it has run once the only way to delete the exe file is from the win 2000 of the dual boot system I have made on another partition otherwise win 98 sais it is a system file and wont allow it to be deleted.
Again any ideas as to how to get rid of it permenantly.
Third
Since going over to BT Yahoo Boadband from Bt anytime my spam mail has increased 100 fold. It got so bad that I am thinking of changing my email address. One new one I have has been going for 4 weeks and so far no spam but the one I registered with for this site is innundated even though I have spam guard on.
Again any ideas about free/cheap extra security to go back to the good old days (1995) when there was no spam to speak of.
can anyone help

Thanks

bt i believe are introducing spam filters some time soon, you could d/load update and run spy bot and adaware from this sites download section and install spyware blaster and you should be in a much better position.

Download and install Ad-Aware from click here and Spybot Search & Destroy from click here .

Run these programs (one at a time), use the update function inside the programs, download all the updates and then scan with them.

After that download and install SpywareBlaster click here

Then download HijackThis click here

Go to click here register and look in the "Hijack This and Spyware Removal Support" section, someone will explain how to use HijackThis and help you with it

Is it listed in Add/Remove programs ? If so try and delete it from here.If not try searching for Hot_Kiss.exe in files and folders and when it finds them highlight , right click and delete.Or maybe you could download MyUninstaller to purge it from here click here[tion/0,fid,23025,00.asp this is a free utility and is quite good ,just a few more things to try so let us know how you get on !

I have just removed the very same thing from a neighbour's pc---You will find that there is an uninstaller on the taskbar link for the xxxhotkiss program.Wont do you much good though as the infection that put it there in the first place will reinstall it on rebooting.

Spybot S&D will shift it inconjunction with Adaware--However I would use the beta version of Spybot click here as the older version (1.2) didn't remove it.
