I am currently having several problems accuring at one time. Theyall started in the last few days as far as i know. Im using XP home edition. The first is Im unable to change my home page it keeps going back to a different link.
ttp://homepage.com@www.e-finder.cc/hp/ At times when you type in a url it comes up with a ehttp.cc in it.

Secondly I am unable to connect and upgrade from the MSN update site or access the help forum there. And yes I am using a verified version of XP. The error I get there is 0X800A1391.

Another issue is when I try to acess the restore system feature on my comp all i get is a blank white screen. And I am totally unable to access the help and support as well. The virus scan is up to date and it did catch a virus several days ago while the wife was surfing but deleted it immediately she thinks it was exploit-urlspoof.gen I have ran the Virus scan several times since and all is clear.

Someone please help....

To fix System Restore:
Start/Run type gpedit.msc
Navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/System Restore
Set Turn off System Restore and Turn off Configuration to "Not Configured"

Right click on My Computer and Select Manage
Navigate to Services and Applications/Services
Navigate to System Restore Service and double click
On the General tab set [Startup Type] to Automatic using the drop down list
Click the Start button to start the service
Close the Computer Management console
reboot

To fix homepage problem:
Clear out your TIF and other temp files.
In Internet Options, under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files, choose to delete all Offline content.
Also, go to Start - Search - Files or folders - in the named box, type: *.tmp
when search is done
Edit - select all - File - delete.
Empty the contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder
and C:\temp folder, if you have one. Empty Recycle bin.

After you have done the above,go back to tools/Internet Options, under the General tab/Home Page,reset your home page.

I downloaded CWShredder as I was told to do yesterday in a message, and it cleared up all my issues in one swoop. I am happy to say. But I would like to Thank all that provided me with their assistance. It is appreciated and the knowledge will come in handy in the future.

Apparently according to CWShredder I had several instantces of the cws bug that is going around.
cws.addclass
cws.searchx
and 25 infected IE regestry values. :eek:
All of which it quickly removed. :)

Once again Thanks for all your help.
