I have tried deleting Vroomsearch and resetting my homepage to Yahoo only to have porno sites etc. get set in my IExplorer. I switched to Firefox browser to stop the intrusion.

My wife needs IE for some medical web searches (she's a Physician). How do erase Vroomsearch and block it from further intrusion? I would like to punish Vroomsearch jerks but that is probably beyond the scope of this request group.
