    I've been trying to get rid of this, what i believe to be, a tracking cookie that sets www.findthewebsiteyouneed.com as my homepage. I followed instructions from a November 5, 2003 forum by LowWaterMark by running Spybot and then HijackThis. Below is the pasted contents of the HijackThis log. Any help solving this incredibly annoying problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hi jwcheung,

    Spybot detected and cleared the findthewebsiteyouneed entries

    These need to be still fixed with HijackThis as well :

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [easywww] C:\windows\easywww2.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [redirect] C:\windows\redirect7.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

    O8 - Extra context menu item: LimeShop Preferences - file://C:\Program Files\LimeShop\System\Temp\limeshop_script0.htm

    O16 - DPF: {56336BCB-3D8A-11D6-A00B-0050DA18DE71} (RdxIE Class) - http://software-dl.real.com/09f18d6...ip/RdxIE601.cab

    Restart PC after doing so and remove :

    C:\windows\easywww2.exe <- this file
    C:\windows\redirect7.exe <- this file

    Go to internet options -> privacy -> advanced

    put a checkmark at the 'automated cookie ...' box and block third party cookies, apply it + ok

    Hope this helps

    Cheers,
