    I ran both spybot and adaware and deleted many things using hijackthis but they seem to reappear so I may not have deleted all mal ware.
    What happens is that my homepage resets periodically, even without restarting the computer or internet explorer. There are a few other bugs but I have yet to figure out whether they are due to any viruses etc. We'll see if I can solve this one problem first... Hijack log follows:

    Hi isolate,

    The first thing I would advise to do is update XP and IE.
    Also tell us what the Startpage is set to, that might give us a clue what we are looking for.

    Regards,

    Pieter
