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
click on Spyware Tools,down load these Freeware files.

Browser Hijack Blaster

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 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.
