I have a Compaq Presario 6000 with Windows XP Home, SP2, (All Updates installed)
Spyware & Virus software installed includes: (All Updates installed)
Microsoft Anti Spyware Beta
Search and Destroy
Trend Micro Anti Spyware (Includes CWShredder)
ONLY Microsoft Anti Spyware detects the following Browser Hijacker.
However, although Microsoft Anti Spyware detects the Hijacker it will NOT delete it. The program states that the Hijacker has been deleted, but after running the program and rebooting, I still am unable to change the Home Page. And the next time I run the Anti Spyware program it detects the same hijacker again.
I have run Hijackthis but did not see anything unusual.
I have checked the registry (as per MS KB 256986) found the the Hijacker and deleted it but it keeps coming back.
I have followed steps in MS KB 310353, which corrected the problem UNTIL I re-booted. Then I had the same problem.
Frankly, I am stumped. Any suggestions other than re-installing Windows?
How do I remove the Hijacker and change the Internet Explorer 6.0 Home Page?
