You have been hijacked. The malware has taken over your browser and reset your home page it seems.

The first thing you need to do is download, install, update and run the following two programs:

*AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

After that is completed follow the instructions here:

Try running these two programs for spyware.

Then go to the Control Panel and open Internet Options. From there select the programs tab at the top. You will see a button that says Reset Web Settings, select it and say yes.

Hope this helps !

Run them anyway and then post a HiJack This log through the link in Enthusiast's earlier post. Tell the team when you post your log that you couldn't do the updates. You will need to be patient as the HiJack Team is very busy right now. Do not post a reply to your own post as you will cause your log to go to the end of the list again.
