Being Hijacked

  startup 09:19 27 Apr 2004

Can anyone help. Some time ago I found my home page hijacked to this address
I have no idea how. I tried deleating it from C:\Winows but it just keeps taking over every time I turn my system on. I have 'Zone Alarm' and 'AVG Antivirus' installed and run 'Spy Bott Search and Destroy' regularly. I even installed the 'Start Page Guard' which works and stopps this page running when I open Internet Explorer but the page keeps popping up while I am online.
Can anyone tell me where it resides on my system and is there a way of ridding myself of it.

See click here
for instructions on using hijackthis, there is a fix being developed by experts for this hijacker, there currently is a temporary fix available, however the formatting in the helproom makes it very difficult to post a log and the fix instructions here.

Thanks for that, I have downloaded both CWS and Hijackthis, will let you know the outcome.
This is a particularly nasty piece of 'malware' while I was browsing the forum earlier a very explicite and unpleasant page of graphic porn images suddenly appeared on the sceen I have no idea how this happens but untill I can resolve this I will not let my kids use the system. The original page that came up each time I opened Explorer was just masses of advertizing!

Ask the kids if they downloaded Messenger, that may be where the hijacker came from.

Thanks for the help. I also downloaded the patch from MS that blocked the Java Hole as explained on one of the site you directed me too.
