Hello - if you are lucky you might spot a small DOS program on your drive. I had a similar problem last year, I had to do a clean install in the end as it reappeared. My culprit was Search.com, picked it up using e-bay. Good Hunting!

The program may be gone if ad-awre or spybot found it and cleaned it but the Reg entries it made mat still be there on reboot they come back
does it change his search page as well as home ?
