    Somehow my default homepage has been re-set to freednshost.info (I'll pay for a contract on these guys). In addition, there appear the same several items in my favorites list, on my desktop and under Tools. Whatever I do, they keep re-setting themselves and re-appearing. I have Spybot and Ad-Aware, but they can't seem to find or solve whatever causes this. I have found a folder Worth A Visit in my Start Menu folder containing these aforementioned items, which also re-appears every time I trash it. How do I get rid of these? And re-set me default home page? (Please bear in mind I'm a computer idiot with no technical skill whatsoever). Thank you for your help.

    Download HijackThis from http://www.computercops.biz/downloads-file-328.html & unzip it into it's own, permanent folder, not a temporary one. Start HJT & press the scan button. When the scan is finished the scan button will change to save. Save the log to a text file & paste it into the body of your post. DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET.
