    Hi,
    I have installed the Spyware Blaster and I want to change my IE homepage back to its original setting. Think is there is like about 10 things that needs to be changed such as my search page, etc. I am not sure what to change.
    When I do change my homepage when I log out of spyblaster or restart my computer it goes back to the homepage that I dont want. Do I need to reinstall my O.S??

    Here is what I have:
    about:blank,(this is my homepage), :mad:
    ( res://C:WINDOWS\system32\hddre.dll/sp.html#28129. I have this entry a couple of times.
    Also %SystemRoot%\system32\blank.htm and last but not least http://ie.search.msn.com/{SUB RFC1766}/srchasst/srchust.htm.

    Basically I want my homepage to be www.msn.com and my search page to be the same although I use Google to search. I have also noticed that everytime I get on the Internet about 10seconds later I get a message saying that IE has experienced a problem and needs to close.

    Can someone please help me!!!! o_O o_O o_O

    It sounds like you have embedded spyware on your system that is re-hijacking your pages after you've fixed them. The usual advice is to have an in-depth spyware review done. This involves running some scanners, cleaners and finally posting a HijackThis Log on a forum that provides spyware review and cleaning services. However, I'm afraid we have discontinued the spyware analysis service at Wilders. See this announcement for a list of other sites that still perform this function:

    There are plenty of security forums out there that still process HijackThis logs, so just pick one but be sure to read their posting rules. Almost all of them have a specific process you must follow to get help now - simply because it is so much work to process a log. This webpage lists a number of forums, many of which do still handle HijackThis log reviews:

    SpywareInfo, CastleCops and Net-Integration are good forums that do this type of work, and they do it for free. After getting the PC clean, they will advise you on how to stay clean.
