  curlylad 19:32 24 Nov 2005

Afriend has had his homepage hijacked by and cannot get rid of it.He has tried to remove with his anti virus , spybot , ad-aware but to no avail.Does anyone know if there is a removal tool or method available or do any of you good people know how to manually remove this so as to be able to reset the homepage to the required one ?

Thanks in advance as always !

I've had a similar experience with another site and managed to remove it (hope it willnot return) with EWIDO prog. It is a trial for 14 days. It worked for me hope it will for you too. GOOD LUCK

Microsoft AntiSpyware has, under ADVANCED TOOLS, a Browser Restore tool.

click here

Also try the UN-INSTALL tool in CCleaner.

...been very busy.Anyway for those interested it turned out he had 3 infections ,myfreeze , isearch and Accoona. I found an uninstall tool for the isearch by typing 'Remove isearch' into google , I ran the tool which seemed to remove it.Next I went into the registry and deleted all mentions of myfreeze and Accoona , I also went into add/remove programs and removed accoona via there , next I reset his homepage via tools internet options then under home page section.Next we rebooted and ran Microsoft antispyware beta , ad-aware and ewido as well as his AVG and deleted all the rubbish it found , we then used cleanup! to clear amoungst other things his temp files and that seems to have sorted it out !

Thanks to all that assisted !
