    Can someone please tell me how to delete the unwanted forced homepages built up in the homepage list found in Control Panel/Internet Options/Homepage Addresses. I know how to change the homepage to what I want, but I want to delete all of the other ones that get forced in while surfing the web. Please email "[email protected]" with any information.

    Thank You

    I downloaded the log file from Hijackthis. The only unwanted homepage showing is Searchalot.com. I probably have at least 100 or more that do not show here.

    Thanks

    I did what was suggested (Been using "Spybot") and set everything unwanted to "Protected" mode. Now, how can I just delete the unwanted pages listed.

    Click on "file"in spybot s & D and select uninstall then reinstall but this time don't protect those files. Simply scasn and when complete click on the fix button.
