have deleted and tried to download trend housecall to help me sort it out but when the program is downloading I get the message

'your current settings prohibit running active x controls on this page, as a result the page may not display correctly'

then housecall does not finish loading what do I need to change to finish download & what do I do to get rid of the trojan horse

have tried to uninstall from add\remove programs and it was unsuccessful my homepage in internet explorer has changed to 'about blank'

can I change my home page through spywareblaster and if so how?

also had a look under regedit for search assistant and it came up with this

under explorer,hkey current user,
'doc find spec mru'
ab 9461b922-3g5a-1"search assistant oc"

can I delete these safely? or is this something to do with spywareblaster sites in regedit
