overtaken by a strange website

  cfcnick 20:04 26 May 2003


My problem is similar to davidh. whenever I start up IE, a website called wabu.com overrides my homepage and acts as a 'passthrough' leaving a big toolbar at the bottom of the screen and a smaller one at the top. It then goes to my homepage but wabu.com is always open unless I close it down, but it then comes back next time I open IE. I have been into options and changed my homepage but no matter what I change it to, wabu.com always opens first. Please help

many thanks

Google for AdAware 6. I had a similar problem with 'LOP' but it got it. It has a free demo version.

That you have recently downloaded something "FREE" and this is the price.

You may have to have a good look at it, note the names of it's files and remove all it's component parts.
