    Hi annoyeduser,

    The best advice we can offer at the moment is to try the fix at http://www.master-search.com

    Several infected people have used it successfully now.

    Regards,

    Pieter

    and whats the crap it says about ''If you got the problems with homepage hijacking - it is the results of failed experiment. It is not because of your computer system security.
    Our team is apologizing for the inconvenience. And sorry at all. '' so them are the ones that created it hmm and your telling me to download a socalled remove.exe from themo_O?

    It is the only solution we have found sofar.
    This is not the only malware where the uninstaller is provided by the same people that spread it, by the way.

    I will have the file checked by some developers if that makes you feel better, but that will probably take a while (until after the weekend).

    Does AVG have a name for the trojan it finds?

    Regards,

    Pieter

    I've just downloaded both versions to check again

    Kapersky are now calling both versions a trojan startpage fz

    I assume they must have found something in it that the people who looked at it didn't before

    I have sent it off to other developers and asked for help and will let you know
