start up

By kristi ·
When I start my system and open the internet a porn site comes up. I have changed my default many times and it always changes back. It also loads a bunch of porn sites into my favorites, which I again delete and they come back every start up. I have run out of ideas, any suggestions?

Try ad aware or spybot search and destroy to get rid of those pesky bot programs.

here's a link for Ad Aware :

and here's a link for spybot:

Also make sure your computer has up-to-date security patches and hotfixes. For Windows systems visit Windows Update

Download adaware, install it, update it, run it, remove bad files, reboot pc, set home page to or whatever. Run it again to ensure all is clean.

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.



Look for the file in english CWShredder.exe

Hijack This:

This program is useful in that it showes what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it it is gone. So be sure.

I have had to boot into safe mode and run these.

Good Luck Lee
