Messenger and home page hijacked

Hi All,

I'm having a few problems locating something that is causing a few problems in IE Explorer and Messenger.

Firstly, home page keeps resetting. Have Adaware, Spybot etc and have checked registry settings on the Microsoft Knowledge page 320159. It seems the problem disappears for a bit but will come back.

Secondly, and probably related, when I sign into MSN Messenger I get a contact list I'd rather not have and it won't sign me into my normal one!

MSN Messenger - do you mean your list of contacts that you chat to or the list of people that you can log in as? Which version of Windows.

It's the list of contacts I can chat to. It's Windows XP.

Tried CWShreddar but nothing found.

Not sure what is wrong - it seems to disappear and then come back when I turn the computer on a day later (although it isn't there if I restart the computer).

I hate these annoying niggly things
