Eliminating porn page from PC

By neilmarsh ·
A few days ago, a filthy page appeared on our PC whenever anyone attempted to "click" on the Internet Explorer" shortcut on our desktop.I've 4 children, and they'de all seen it before I knew of it's existence.It contains some pretty rough pics, and has upset my youngest two children.
I've downloaded Adaware 5.83,ran it a couple of times, but it still re-appears whenever the machine is rebooted.
The offending page address is:
http://kov4l.com and the index at the foot of the page reads:
Apache/1.3.22 Server at max.web 1 host.net
I'm at my wits end, now, and would really appreciate some help with this. my network provider suggested I re-format the whole disk, but not being a wizz with PC's, this sounds like a lot of work, especially if there's another, simpler way to do it.
Thanking you in anticipation,
Neil.

Change your home page

Unfortunately, someone changed your home page. This can be done simply by visiting a malicious web site. To fix it, run Internet Explorer, then click tools, then Internet options, then change the home page (at the top of the entry screen) to something like http://www.disney.com or whatever you want it to be.
