this may be off topic, but I'm at a loss, every time I start up explorer 6, I get this for a homepage (http://www.znext.com/) and I have changed it time and time again to my regular homepage (www.iwon.com) by the method, tools/internet options/typing my homepage in/apply/okay/.
but no matter how many times I do it ,it won't stick.
any ideas?

Hi king_02891, it sounds like you have spyware.
Get Spybot S & D from security.kolla.de
Install it, go to the online tab, click Check For Updates. Install all of the available updates.
Then scan your system, and remove everything that it finds and automatically checks the box to remove.

Yes it is spyware, but you need to run Spybot S & D from that site to fix the problem. At least it should fix the problem, if not that Hijack report will be helpful, so dont edit it out or anything.

sybot S&D seemed to do the trick, i couldn't believe the crap that was on there after only three days, and yes i did a needed update, there was one on there that kind of worried me called WINVESTIGATOR from Tropical, said it was a keystroke/appication/tracking thing, what's that all about? do I have somebody looking into my PC?

Might be a good time to get a firewall.. http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/company/products/znalm/freeDownload.jsp

That will alert you if the spyware tries to access the internet, so it cant say email your keylogs back to someone or you would see the activity.

Is this by any chance a work/office computer? If it is, they probably installed the keylogger on purpose.,

Can you please run Hijack This again, we may have to stop this thing manually. We need to find out how it is changing itself to the homepage.
