    Hi. After trying a bunch of different software, I finally installed spyware guard, and it has successfully blocked a particularly obnoxious program called "Globe-finder". However, every time I start up my computer, spyware guard tells me about the attempted hijack, and I have to go through five or six different windows, to confirm on each window that I want to keep my original settings. Is there a way to specify that I want to keep one homepage, and have spyware guard automatically ignore any changes attempted on my browser?

    Hi Total_Gaper,

    Please download, unzip and run: http://www.spywareinfoforum.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip
    If that does not cure it, please go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/, and download 'Hijack This!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log as a .txt file, and copy and paste its contents into your next post.

    Most of what it lists will be harmless, so do not fix anything yet.

    Regards,

    Piete

    Woops! Um, I guess some one else got on to my computer... Thanks a lot. It looks like that did the trick, but I have only rebooted a couple times. Who makes CWShred? And why do they just hand it out to people over the internet? Anyway, thanks a lot for the help.

    P.S. Metallica rules.
