    Hi all,

    I can't seem to get rid of the searchv start page. I have done the recommended ad-aware and spybot procedures and eliminated winshow, but searchv keeps returning as my start page when i reboot. Any thoughts?

    Run CWshredder from
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip

    THEN ANY OF THESE LEFT BEHIND AFTER IT HAS RUN NEED FIXING

    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.searchv.com/

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [sys] regedit /s C:\WINDOWS\sys.reg
    And while you're at it these also , not part of the problem but unneeeded at start up and can be run manually when you want them
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [UpdReg] C:\WINDOWS\UpdReg.EXE (reminder to register a sound/graphics card)
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot

    O4 - Global Startup: Microsoft Office.lnk = C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office10\OSA.EXE ( a complete resource hog with no need to start up with windows)
