Incredimail mystart has hijacked my IE7 home page
I'd be grateful for how to eliminate incredimail mystart. I have uninstalled incredimail, followed the microsoft instructions for cleaning the registry, and also run the PCHell incredimail uninstaller, but my home page keeps being hijacked when i reboot.

Here's the hijack log file

Once that is done, and Incredimail opens the browser, go to your preferred homepage and then click on Tools > Internet Options > and click on the button to use the page being displayed as your home page. That will put it back as the default homepage.

Then ALWAYS pay attention to installation dialog boxes!

Let me know if you still have problems after that.

Thumbs up Problem Solved
Laura, thanks for the suggestion. That sounds like it would work. But in the meantime I already succeeded in eliminating it. After several attempts to switch my home page - every time I rebooted Mystart came back - I ran the PCHell Incredimail Uninstaller a couple of times, then ran Hijackthis again, and as I'm not familiar with the program I was poking around trying to figure out how to get to the R0 Mystart line to delete it, but found that the line already showed the changed home page that I wanted. So I backed out and rebooted, and sure enough Mystart was gone. I'm not sure what happened, perhaps I mis-ran the uninstall program initially, but it is permanently gone. Thanks to all.
