Hi,

everytime I set my homepage to a blank page using the IE options menu, this blank page is hijacked by a search page. This search page doesn't have it's own URL (as far as I know) but appears in my screen everytime I open a blank page with IE with the title "Search for...". It's very annoying because it keeps coming back :techsupport: . I have full access in the internet options menu and if I change the homepage to 'google' for example, the page doesn't appear. However, when I close IE and then open it again, the homepage has been reset to the blank page and the annoying search page opens again. Even without restarting my computer.

I read the FAQ, but I really have no clue what I should do :wtf: . I ran Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D. They both keep finding the same files, so there must be some file that's instantly replacing those files after I remove them. Furthermore the search page includes various pop-ups for fake spyware removal sites.

Another (small) problem is that everytime I type an URL in my address-bar using IE without typing "http://" before "www........." then my browser can't find the page.

I hope you can help me with these problems, especially with the first one. The HT-log is pasted below.

friendly regards

Download StartDreck from here. Unzip to its own folder and start the program:

Press 'Config'
Press 'Unmark All'

Check the following boxes only:
Registry -> Run Keys
System/drivers> Running processes

Press 'Ok'. Press 'Save' and select the location to save the log file (default is the same folder as the application). Post the log in this thread.

That looks OK. Could you click here to download CWShredder by Merijn Bellekom and run it, hit 'fix' as opposed to 'scan only'. If you already have CWShredder, click 'Check for update' and make sure you are running version 1.59.1 Reboot when done.

Open Ad-Aware. Before scanning click on "check for updates now" to make sure you have the latest reference file. Then click the gear wheel at the top and check these options:

General> activate these: "Automatically save log-file" and "Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal"

Scanning > activate these: "Scan within archives", "Scan active processes", "Scan registry", "Deep scan registry", "Scan my IE Favorites for banned sites" and "Scan my Hosts file"

Tweaks > Scanning Engine> activate this: "Unload recognized processes during scanning."

Tweaks > Cleaning Engine: activate these: "Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion" and "Let Windows remove files in use after reboot."

Click "Proceed" to save your settings, then click "Start", make sure "Activate in-depth scan" is ticked green then scan your system. When the scan is finished, the screen will tell you if anything has been found, click "Next". The bad files will be listed, right click the pane and click "Select all objects" - this will put a check mark in the box at the side, click "Next" again and click "OK" at the prompt "# objects will be removed. Continue?".

Reboot when done. Rescan with HJT and post a new log here for a final check over.

That's a lot better. With only HJT running, have it fix:
