I've got the same problem. I had the sign in the bottom right too. Go to Here to find out how to get rid of the sign in the bottom right. But the Explorer Home page problem I haven't figured out yet :thumbsup:

If your using Win XP or 2000, do this.

First, print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Then please download, install and update Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Go here and follow the instructions for using SmitfraudFix. Read "How to create/extract a ZIP File in Win ME/XP/2003" or "How to create/extract a ZIP File in Win 9x/2000" if your not sure how to do this.

After using the tool reboot again in "SAFE MODE" and Clean out your Temporary Internet files as follows:
  • Quit Internet Explorer and quit any instances of Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click "Delete Files" under Temporary Internet Files.
  • In the Delete Files dialog box, tick the "Delete all offline content check box", and then click "OK".
  • On the General tab, click "Delete Cookies" under Temporary Internet Files, and then click "OK".
  • Click on the Programs tab then click the Reset Web Settings button. Click "Apply" then "OK".
  • Click "OK".
Next Click Start, click Control Panel and then double-click Display. Click on the Desktop tab, then click the Customize Desktop button. Click on the Web tab. Under Web Pages you should see a checked entry called Security info or something similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the Delete button. Click "Ok" then "Apply" and "Ok".

Empty the Recycle Bin by right-clicking the Recycle Bin icon on your Desktop, and then clicking Empty Recycle Bin.

Then scan with Ewido per the instructions you printed out and reboot back to normal mode.
