Hi,
Hot offers has changed my Internet Explorer home page.
Have tried running No AdAware, Adware Away,Search and Destroy, When I run Spybot it says congratulations no immediate threats were found, Spyware Doctor identifies the "Hot Offers" problem but cannot fix it completely, it always says that one file cannot be quarantined. I have tried starting in safe mode - nothing seems to work.
Would be so grateful for some help.Thank you.
Here is the scan of HiJackThis.

First try the instructions given in this thread; they seem to have worked for others members who were infected with Hotoffers.

If that doesn't fix the problem for you just let us know, post a new HJT log, and we'll go from there.
