    My IE default page has been loaded with a junk site and I want to change MSN to be the default page.

    I tried the internet options under Tools and change but the junk website can't be removed.

    Any help on this?

    Thanks

    Download & instal Adaware from http://majorgeeks.com/download.php?det=506
    & update it B4 scanning.
    In settings under 'scanning,' have it set to
    'scan within archives,'
    'scan active processes,'
    'scan registry,'
    'deepscan registry'
    'scan my IE Favourites for banned URL's,'
    'scan my host's file.'
    Also in tweaks under 'cleaning engine' set it to 'Automatically try to unregister objects prior to deletion.'
    Remove what it finds by placing a check in the box to the left of the object.
    Download & instal Spybot S&D from http://www.safer-networking.org/index.php?page=download Update it B4 scanning.
    After the scan is complete, have spybot fix everything marked RED.
    On the page that first opens when you start Spybot there is an option to immunise, you should do this. In the immunise section there is also a link to download Spywareblaster. Download that & you can keep it updated by selecting the same link that you use to download it.

    If they do not work Download HijackThis from http://209.133.47.200/~merijn/files/HijackThis.exe & 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.

    Unzip, run and hit the ->fix tab to fix all found problems

    CWShredder takes advantage of seurity holes in windows so you should install all critical as well as hotfixes available from windows update.
