URGENT...Internet taken over by www.searchex.com

  phil 19:34 12 Feb 2003

Our internet browsing has been taken over by something called click here.

Every time I load up i.e the home page loads up then suddenly changes to this searchex site. I go into options and change the home page to 'blank'. Close i.e and then restart it and it then loads up with searchex again.

I've run the Windows search, deleted all temp internet files, deleted history, searched regedit, run ad aware and still it comes up.

The strange thing is I'm running XP with 5 users and it only comes up on 3 of them.

I've now got to the stage where I can't think where to look next.

Has anyone got any ideas about this?

All sorted now thanks.

Spybot couldn't find it but and.doxdesk.com did.

That site gave me a dos routine to run and that helped a lot.

Thanks again
