    My IE home page keeps changing to http://martfinder.com/index.htm?aff=6600. When I close IE I then get another window with a picture of scull and crossbones (http://martfinder.com/hate_popups.htm?aff=6600) which says:

    HATE POPUPS?
    YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED BY SPYWARE!
    Use the following links to remove it
    (the links are all martfinder links)

    I have run the latest version of Ad-aware and changed my homepage back to MSN. It then stays MSN for the duration of the boot period but the next time I boot up then open IE, I get that home page again.

    How can I get rid of this problem?

    Download Hijackthis.
    Create a folder on your hard drive and save it there.
    Unzip the file and extract it to the folder you have created.
    Scan your machine, then click on Save Log.

    Post a copy back here and someone will be happy to review it.

    Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.
