Hey, this is my first post and I have a lil problem. My homepage has been changed to www.securityerrors.com and everytime I try to change it, that homepage keeps popping up. I am also getting false security alerts on my notification area in my taskbar and I receive pop-ups to sites advertising spyware removal products (Spytrooper, Spyaxe, and Spyguard). Last, McAfee sometime catches Spyaxe trojans but my homepage still stays changed! PLEASE HELP!!!

Have you done any other virus scan other then McAfee? I would also suggest you do a HijackThis scan. You can post your scan results at this link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/
