Run these online virus scanners:
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
ewido security suite - offers protection against urgently growing threats like Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware and Keyloggers.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
Spywareblaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

If the above doesn't help rid you of the problem, then:

Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team.

Did you ever receive a response? When I use MSN.com as my home page it is locked in to 11/9/05 -- does not update -- I was hoping you might have a clue if you fixed your problem. Thanks.

Rona you may want to try and clean out your temporary internet files. IN IE, click on tools then internet options. Then in the general tab clean out the temp int files.

One more thing that helps is to go to control panel, click on java plug in, click on cache, then click clear these files.
It removes that horrible javabyte varify virus.
That is the one that usually takes over your home page.

Tried - still have the problem - IF I change home pages (example: CNN.com) - there is no problem - it updates like normal - I go back to MSN.com - still locked on 11/9/05.

Hi Rona,

In an internet explorer window, Go to tools->internet options->settings-> set the setting to "automatic"

This should make it refresh with new pages "automatically", whatever that means. This works for most computers I've seen. You can also set it to load a new version of the page every time you visit that page - if you have a slow internet connection you will not want to do this, because the page might not have any changes on it.

Let us know how it works.
