Maybe/Maybe not. I've usually had to go into the Processes list in Task Manager to see the name of what was running and use that for a find argument. Other times it was some obscure reference that led me to the offending entry.

jamis have you tried the SpyHunter program??

This spyhunter has been around and it will find problems on a users machine that don't exist and wants money to correct those problems, it doesn't matter if you cough it up or not, you end up with worse problems than you started with.

I know about Spyhunter. Didn't realize the download was that. Just scrolled over the download link on the page and saw the URL for pccaretips.com. Sorry for the bad reference. Referenced the link for the other steps in trouble shooting the "your-homepage.net" problem. I agree. Don't touch the download referenced in the link.

Jamis, you can edit and remove the link so others don't get it before reading on.

Aww..No harm, no foul jamis. I just hope kbbgood stopped in time. Follow GokAy's lead and remove that link, and mention in the reason for edit line something to the effect that you removed the "bad/dead link".

I do have a help requested to Jacee (ms malware mvp) to stop by here (kb's thread) to see if she can help.



Kb; Are you still with us?
