spyware

By lkaye4 ·
I previously found out that I have spyware on my system which causes my home page to change after each reboot. I downloaded several spyware removal programs, ran them, delete so called spyware, downloaded and installed start page guard and as long as I run that each time i turn on cpu, home page is ok...........but still cant get the home page is stay same without the startpage guard?

Wrong forum for questions, The Technical Q&A section would be better in future.

Sounds like you've been hijacked, very common until IE6 was released.(no i'm not sayig MS fixed something).

IE6 apparently stops this type of attack.

There are many resources for you so here's a start.
You've already run adaware, if not DO SO, http://www.lavasoft.nu (it's free)

Now take a look here:

Do you have an UP TO DATE (within a week) virus scanner?
If not, AVG is one of the best and it's free!
http://www.grisoft.com

Lastly, if not found from the above site,
check her for BHO (Browser Helper Object)crashes,
I REALLY doubt it is a BHO error but more likely spyware or a virus.
