    Hello

    When I click on IE I am directed to this page:

    mk:mad:MSITStore:C:\spe\start.chm::/start.html#

    I have tried Ad-aware, AVG, deleting cookies/ temp files etc, restoring browser defaults.

    How can I get rid of this annoying page??

    Please do this. Click here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html to download Hijack This.

    It’s very important that you save it to its own folder on your hard drive, such as program files (not temporary files or the desktop), so that it can create proper back-ups and be able to restore them if necessary.

    Close all open windows and open Hijack This. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and then save it to NotePad. Click on “Edit” – “Select all” – “copy” and then “paste” into the thread.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET, most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed.
