    Hello all! A website I went to apparently put something on my computer. It re-sets my homepage to their porno crap. Every time I change it and re-boot, my homepage settings go back to what they put there. I checked my registry using the registrys "find" feature, using their websites name. I found a bunch of entrys and deleted them. Now another sick site is put in as my homepage when re-booting, in the same registry entries that I deleted. In other words, something keeps changing my registry after I clean it up!!!!! I ran a virus check, and it found one with the file "wupdt.exe, a trojan. I deleted it and all registry entries for it, as I was told to by the website that found it, housecall.antivirus.com. None of this seems to have worked. I am ready to go in and look at every entry in my registry myself now! What or where could this problem be located at? Running win95 with 64ram on a 200. Thanks for the time and help as always! Mike.
