What a pain this one is sitting at a friends PC and the home page which we can't seem to change keeps going back to this porn orientated searcgh engine, have tried deleting programs that seem related, have tried changing the homepage in internet options, have tried locking the toolbar as this site sets up toolbars we don't need.

AAAHHHH can anyone help?

a registry entry associated with this, and you'll need to find it and delete it.

Go to start and click on run. Type: regedit and click OK.

Now back up the registry to your desktop (file/export)

Now search for anything that contains the word hotwebsearch and delete it. You may have to try variations on the name, but it will be there somewhere.
