    Please help me find the affending file. Homepage becomes motor-search.info. Shortcuts are added to the Desktop and Favorites. I have removed reference to this page using Hijack This, but it returns.

    Thank you,

    After using all the usual programs I found the problem. CW Shredder was the answer.

    Post one more HiJackThis scan. You may still have some nasty leftovers or other malware left in your log.

    Run HJT again and check:

    O19 - User stylesheet: C:\WINDOWS\sstyle.css
    O19 - User stylesheet: C:\WINDOWS\sstyle.css (HKLM)

    Close all applications and browser windows before you click "fix checked".

    I removed the two suggested lines earlier. Along with other changes the problem was fixed.
