Spyware Guard continuously and repeatedly warns that my homepage and searchbar and searchtools are being reset by countere.com.

Ran Spybot, Ad-aware, CWShredder and HiJack This. Ad-Aware shows this as a problem and every time I have it fixed, reboot and re-run Ad-Aware, its back.

In config of HiJack This, I found hoe page had been changed to About:Blank. Returned ti to my normal home page.

OBTW, I also have just recently begun getting unwanted sites added to my favorites list. Delete them, but they come back as I load MSIE.

Has anyone dealt with this countere.com before?

Spyware Guard is now altering between countere.com trying to hijack the home page4 and search page, and About:Blank and sp.html trying to reset the same. Spyware Guard is doing its job, but this is happening every couple of minutes.

How do I get rid of these things???????
