My homepage is been set to the hotoffers website constantly and I also get an error message pop-up that tries to get me to download anti-spy software if I click ok. Can anyone help please?

My HijackThis log is as follows:

Hi Diabloangelo, welcome to DaniWeb :D

Please follow the suggestions and instructions in the links below to help prevent reinfections (don't skip the Windows Updates), start the cleanup process, and to find out a bit about HijackThis.

Then, in the third link, follow the instructions in post #4 (HotOffers Removal).

When you do a scan with HijackThis, have it fix all of the O15 entries.

When you've completed all that, please post a new log.

I am pleased to say I no longer get the annoying hotoffers popup and that your great advice has allowed me to remove a lot of other junk to.

As requested in the previous thread I have included a new HJT log below, thanks again for your help.

Your log looks a lot better now :) Just a couple more things. Scan with HJT and have it fix:

O2 - BHO: Class - {EE72118D-405B-F80E-60FC-ABE4266F3C23} - C:\WINDOWS\WINLV.DLL (file missing)
O19 - User stylesheet: (file missing)

Close any open windows, and hit Fix checked.

Go to C:\WINDOWS and delete WINLV.DLL (if it won't delete, try Safe Mode).

Empty your Recycle Bin and reboot. Let us know if you're still having any problems.
