(I read the FAQ page)
My default homepage keeps being changed to topotun.com/index.htm. I used many programs, including ad-aware, spywareblaster, spyware doctor, bazooka, and finally spysweeper. None worked. In each case, I removed/fixed all the detected sofwares, but the topotun adware didn't go!

On "Registry Editor", I searched for "topotun" and modified all the results found, from "topotun.com" to "google.com". However, my modifications worked only for the first time I opened a new IE (Version 6.0) window. The second time I opened a new IE window, my homepage was "topotun.com/index.htm" again! I tried this many times. (I observed this phenomenon with "spysweeper", too. I remove all the problems detected. But then, one minute after I open a new IE window, spysweeper gives an alert saying that it has just detected 'changes in IE's default pages' and 'home page', and 'additions to my IE Favorites'.)

Also, I should add that the address bar of Internet Explorer _usually_ reads "about:blank" when the page is on "topotun.com".

The other problem is: The ad-aware also detects "CoolWebSearch" objects, which also reappear no matter how many times I delete them. However, I think that "topotun" overrules the "CoolWebSearch" -or sth like that- because my homepage is always "topotun".

Any help is welcome. And thanks for the job you are doing there.
