    My start page on Internet Explorer changed to "c:\searchpage.html" and that webpage is copied to that folder on my C drive. I tried deleting the webpage and it will reappear every time and the same goes for changing the start page on Internet Explorer. There's nothing on Add/Remove programs list and I've searched for unusual folders and files, but I couldn't find it. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Do you have SpybotS&D installed, also Ad-aware? Both of these will remove spyware and malware. Go to www.Wilders.org/spyware.htm and download them. Also, check the articles at the beginning of the Security section. They are very helpful and might have better sites to go to. Also they have instructions on how to use them. Expecially the (How did I get infected in the first place) section. Sounds like you do have a spyware or virus infection.

    DO NOT attempt to delete anything from HJT, just run the scan and post it here. Someone more qualified will look at it.

    Re-boot after.......open IE,go to "tools">"Internet Options" and re-set your prefered home page.
    Use the "Imunize" feature in Spybot....it will help protect your homepage.
