    Hey Everyone,
    I have just recently upgraded from Windows Xp to windows Vista Ultimate. I am loving it so far except I am having one problem. Everytime I boot up my PC internet explorer open's at startup with this website, "http://tvstream.ath.cx". I have tried everything I can think of to make it go away, I am thinking it is some kind of spyware or something. I have scanned my computer with BitDefedner and it didn't fix the problem. Also, when I try to clean the IE files using bit defender, everytime it goes to delete cookies it says "cancelled by user", I think that there may be a bad cookie causing this page to open at startup. Is there a way to do a fresh install of IE7 or anything to try to repair this problem?
    Thanks.

    Get Spybot S&D ,,, this is the definitive Malware cleaning software.
    Run it in safe mode.... continuously hit F8 when you reboot after installing Spybot.
    Try this first.
