    Hi,

    I have WinNt SrvPck 1..... dsl connection (ONLY 64MB RAM)

    Spyguard has caught a registry entry to:

    hkey current user software microsoft/internet explorere/main "start page" ("about: blank")

    but it can't remove it. Spyguard is letting me restore previous browser setting.

    (I've never downloaded or used the hijack this program I see used here, so if I need to use it, please show me where to get it, and what to do.) Thanks.

    I do have a program called BHO Demon, but I uninstalled and reinstalled this and it caught a dll, acroread, and google. I left google. It doesn't catch this problem.


    Thanks for your help.

    Taperino

    I downloaded CWshredder, a new copy of SpyBot, and found HiJack.

    Going to run CW Shredder and see what happens! *puppy*
