    Every time I start my computer a search engine home page comes on instead of the MSN home page. I have to go to tools,internet options, delete the search engine and type in MSN.COM.Then it works just fine. However the next time I start the computer the same thing happenes again.
    thanks

    Download CWShredder

    http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/CWShredder.exe

    Close all browser windows, open cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" and let it run.

    Then restart your computer and post another log.

    IMPORTANT! To help prevent this from happening again, you should install all the security patches and critical updates.

    Then download Hijack This and post a scan log for the experts to look at.

    Please do this. Click here: http://www.sherrylynn.us/HijackThis.exe to download Hijack This. Save it to it’s own folder (not temporary files or the desktop).

    Close all open windows and open HIJACK THIS. Click “Scan”. When the scan is finished (it only takes a second), the scan button will change to “Save Log”. Click on “Save Log” and save it to NotePad. Copy the entire log and paste it here.

    DO NOT FIX ANYTHING YET most items that appear in the log are harmless or even needed. Wait for someone to analyze the scan and advise.
