I posted a message on 07/08/2004.
I let my subscription for an update of Norton Anti virus lapse, while it was lapsed I downloaded something that is now giving me grief! it keeps setting my homepage to something I don't want (about blank), when I go into programs to try to reset this, it will let me set a new home page, but as soon as I close and re open my internet, it is set on (about blank again). It wont let me open some web pages, it jumps back to my unwanted home page. (I am emailing this question from a friends PC, as I am unable to access this homepage from my PC, For the reason explained above).
When logging on to the internet and my home page opens, above my start button, I can see Java script, and applets opening.
I have run an updated version of Norton Anti Virus, I have run spybot, Adaware, no luck.
Please help, how do I get rid of this.
Thanks for the replys. I have tried CW shredder, hijackThis and I cannot access the home page, (cannot be displayed). I have down loaded Stinger, and I freezes my computer and I have to restart it, when I run the program, (everytime).
please help, where to from here?

you may need to run antivirus and spyware tools in safe mode.

otherwise try about: blaster (http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4289.html) FOLLOW THE INSTUCTIONS CAREFULLY.
