My Homepage keeps changing - Adware?

  Devious Dave 16:17 08 Jan 2004

Hi, each time I switch on my PC and then onto the internet I find my hompage as changed to cool search with the URL "click here". I have run ad-aware and it picks up one registry entry and then I delete it. Then if I restart the machine, click on IE home page is back to "click here". I have tried changing it in internet options and in the registry but every time I restart the machine it back to cool search. I assume it adware but why doesn't ad-aware get rid of it and what will? Cheers, David.

Do you regularly update AdAware and have you got the latest version?
