    I was reading other threads and need some technical advice:

    I'm trying to rid Internet Explorer of Ziportal as my home page...as well as un-authorized additions to "My Favorites" list.

    I've downloaded HijackThis and here are the results...

    Do you need instructions how to do it or is it that you cannot change it?

    To change the Home page:

    Open Internet Explorer and select Tools, Internet Options, and General tab. Under Home Page, change the web address to what you desire. Then click OK

    To delete the Favorite:

    Open Internet Explorer and select Favorites and Orgainze Favorites. A menu with Delete will be provided. Find the entry and click Delete.

    Download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or AdAware. Read the help files to familiarize yourself with how they work. I recommend you use them both since each tends to find things the other misses. Let them clean up any spyware found.

    Then, to be doubly sure, download and run CWShredder and run it (link to the download is near the bottom of the page).

    Finally, if you are specifically having problems getting to search engine sites you may be infected with Qhosts. A removal tool can be download here.
