This software
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/spg/

Should take care of the start page problem.

As to the other program, look at the run and runonce keys in the registry.

Once you find the link to the program, delete both the key and the program files.
I would also search the registry on the actual name of the program as it shows up in the run key.

A usefull tool, is AdAware from Lavasoft
www.lavasoft.de

Next, try the Proxomitron

A quick workaround to not having these pages ever come back again is to put entries in your 'hosts' file for them. For example, let's say the your "http://tefs.com" has an IP address of 123.456.789.123. In your 'hosts' file, put an entry for it like this: 127.0.0.1 tefs.com. What this effectively does is send any requests for that site into oblivian. This also works for popup ads, if you can the the URL for the ad. I use this quite a bit and it works fine. The best long term solution, though, is what the answer from "TheChas" says.

Good luck...

Chris

what are you doing? with server to internet? never do that, never.., the other answers are good, use a firewall too, use opera or mozilla to surf. i?ll hope you don?t use the server as pdc etc..(shaking had)
