I am having a problem with Internet Explorer (which is not my most used browser): Searching.net is asking to be set up as my Homepage. Does anyone know how to disable this pesky invader? I have the latest versions (updated) of Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyware Guard & Spyware Blaster, BHO demon, and HTAstop, and none have managed to find, let alone disable it. I have emptied IE History, and the index.dat files. And still this pesky invader is pestering me. Does anyone know anything else I can try to rid myself of it? And what would it be: a BHO? an HTA exploit? what? If it is not already on your various (SpywareGuard etc) databases, Javacool, maybe you could add this one: searching.net. Many thanks, PcB. By the way, I've just remembered..I also tried repairing IE6, but it came up with this error: "IE cannoot be repaired:Version 4.10.01998 of MSHTA.exe exists, but needs to be greater than 6.0.2800.1100." I don't know if this relates to my invader. What say you? How can I get the updated version, without installing IE6 again? Any help is much appreciated.
