Pop ups and home page

By malosa ·
The past couple of days anytime I open the internet it goes to a site as my home page. I've changed the home page in Internet settings, but somehow the other url overrides what I set. On top of that, suddenly every time I open the internet I'm bombarded wtih porn pop up windows. I've virus scanned, done spyware/adware runs and can't find anything wrong. Please help.

Go to www.majorgeeks.com
click on Spyware Tools,down load these Freeware files.

AD-aware
Browser Hijack Blaster
CWShredder
SpyBot-Shearch&Destroy

Install and run these and your porn home page will begone
These files reinstall after reboot,because they are in the registry.

Spybot Search and Destroy worked. I had already done adware and it did not.

Go to www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/downloads.html and get CWShredder and HiJack This. These tools will help you get rid of the spyware that you have, which is a varient of Cool Web Search.
