    Alright, I give up, I have been trying to figure out whats wrong for a few days now. I've read over a fair bit of your forums, but haven't been able to figure out whats got me. I'm running Windows 2000, everything is updated except for a few securtiy updates becuase the windows update was telling me they could not install. Ran spybot, adaware, all that stuff. My homepage keeps getting changed. It seems to do it at night every day, but it could just be when I'm noticing it. I also keep getting adware installed o my computer. So heres my log, hopefully someone can figure out what I can't. Thanks

    Update and run both Adaware and Spybot......re-booting between scans.

    Consider installing the following:

    SpywareBlaster v 3.0 and SpywareGuard v2.2, to prevent Active-X drive-by installations, as well as provide real-time browser hijacking protection: http://www.wilderssecurity.net/index.html

    IE-SPYAD, a registry file that adds a long list of known "sites" to the Restricted Sites of your Internet Explorer: http://www.staff.uiuc.edu/~ehowes/resource.htm

    You need these!!!
    www.grisoft.com Free AVG antivirus.
    www.zonelabs.com Free zoneAlarm firewall

    ;)
