Home Page Blocked

I've managed to catch something nasty on my Win 98, IE 5.5 system. Something is running that constantly resets my home page - I've read the earlier threads and downloaded Spybot and Adaware, but no joy. Next step is to follow the MIcrosoft advice, and play around with MSCONFIG line by line. I guess that'll solve it eventually but, the bigger problem is that I can access everything except my home page, which is the homepage of my ISP. This is also preventing me accessing my mail. Any ideas anybody?

CWShredder as suggested by Gongoozler should sort it out in most cases.

If not, try HijackThis click here install and run it to see your internet settings and startup items which may have caused the problem.

If you know what to remove, tick the items and let HijackThis fix it. If not sure what to remove, click Save log, then copy and paste the log file here, and we'll have a look for you.

When you do fix it, use startpage guard click here and spyware blaster to stop nasties getting on in the first place click here

I'm not at the infected machine right now, but I've checked the links and downloaded the suggestions, so here's hoping. Will update tomorrow. Thanks again.
