I've looked everywhere on the web for this and I still can't get this off my computer. I've used Spyware, ADware, Hijackthis etc.. and I've noticed someone else had the same kind of problem but I wasn't able to fix it that way. Also it's a different sequence so I don't know which to get rid of. Also I have window XP and i don't know how to start it up on safe mode.

The problem basicly is that this website called payfortraffic keeps poping up as my homepage. Everytime I try to get rid of it, it keeps on coming back.

Here's the logfile of the Hijack this.

Hi Xanatos

Welcome to TSG! :)

Click here to download CWShredder. Close all browser windows,UnZip the file, click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.

IMPORTANT!: To help prevent this from happening again, I strongly recommend you install the patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits.

The simplest way to make sure you have all the security patches is to go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"

Come back here and post another Hijack This log and we'll get rid of what's left.

Restart to safe mode.

How to start your computer in safe mode

First in safe mode click on My Computer. Go to Tools > Folder Options. Click on the View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is checked. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and "Hide extensions for known file types" . Now click "Apply to all folders"
Click "Apply" then "OK"

Now find and delete:
