Omega search

I've tried all sorts though can't get rid of this thing.
What happened was suddenly my home page was set to omegasearch.com and a omega search bar pops up on the bottom of my screen (its a seperate IE window).
I have managed to get rid of the browser redirect to their homepage though the bar persists every time I open IE.

Anyone know how to kill it?

click here download and use the free version of adaware, it will get rid of lop. com and omega. See also click here

I already have and have used adaware. It didn't get anything to do with omega search.

Have you deleted your restore points and then turned system restore back on?

A2 found a piece of malware I didn't know I had though it didn't remove the omega search bar.

What do you mean by restore points?

bump?
Its getting rather annoying with its sex adverts, my little sister uses this computer too and I have to turn it all off every time before she uses it (a minor concern but still its getting very annoying)

try wwebroot spysweeper,

after scanning it also protects your home page from changing,

or you could try acronis there new suit is gr8
