Hi,

There is some sort of spyware on my computer that seems to change my browser homepage to http://<none>, but it is actually a search engine. Also about the same time this problem started, i began recieving pop-up ads telling me i had spyware. So far to try solve this problem i have used Spybot-S&D and Ad-aware. 6.0.

:(

I have looked on a number of post on this site to fix this problem but so far I have not been able to get rid of this annoying spyware.

Can some please help me.

THank you

Please HELP!

First up, welcome & well done on running Adaware & spybot first :) . Unfortunately, as you have discovered, they are unable to repair this particular hijack so please do the following:

Download and install APM from: http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=apm

Close all windows except HijackThis and fix the lines above.

In the upper window of APM select explorer.exe
In the lower window find and rightclick the BHO from the HijackThis log
Select Unload DLL and click OK on the prompts that follow.

Reboot and scan with AdAware to remove the txt and html protocol association.
