    A page called iwantsearch.com keeps taking over my browser and resets itself as my homepage. I go into internet options and set my homepage default as yahoo.com but then iwantsearch.com takes it over again. I have tried 4 or 5 different spywares but nothing has worked. What can i do to get rid of this annoyance ?

    Get Hijack This - close all running programs - Run Hijack and post the log here.

    I would assume you've used AdAware SE, SpyBot S&d, and SPywareBlaster with the most current definitions

    Sounds like you have a hijacker try this. Dowload and then update CWshredder from majorgeeks.com
