homepage changes by itself

My homepage was originally set to the BBCi site but for some reason it now changes to click here every time i connect to the internet. If i change it back to the BBCi site using properties, the next time i log on its back to 123found. How can i stop this happening?

sounds like you have been hijacked.

try downloading adaware,spybot,spywareblaster

click here click here click here

install and update spybot and adaware then run a scan with both and remove anything they find.

install spyware blaster,update it and click enable all protection.

change your home page back again.

tried adaware and spybot cannot get anything on the link for spyblaster though. Also keep getting a prog called 1on1 (porn!) which keeps installing itself. Thanx for help anyway huggyg

are adaware and spybot up to date?

the spywareblaster link works fine for me.

click here click here (im guessing most up to date avs should detect it also)

turn off system restore and update everything and scan,remove anything you find,re enable system restore.maybe.

also try hijack this click here

all i can think of sorry.

Try downloading the latest version of CWShredder from here,

click here

Should this clear the problem consider installing Startpage Guard

click here

and SpyWareBlaster to stop any future 'flyby' infections.

Hope this is of some use.
