I have been taken over by something that changes my homepage to about.blank and constantly provides porn pop-ups. I have run adaware, spybot and norton anti-virus, the only one that finds them is norton but says it can't deal with them. the file names are atlju.exe and ieqy32.exe. Also porn websites are being added to my favourites. Please help, thank you.

If you are unable to delete the files, try changing the extension to (.old) or similar.
