Spyware is restricting your registry setting that allows you to change your website.

Remove anything from Add-Remove programs you dont use or looks suspicious.

Download anti-spyware programs like Spybot and Adaware from www.download.com, update them, run them, delete all spyware.

Update your anti-virus software, run it.

Download HijackThis, submit a log for someone here to look at.

Read the info on all of this in the Viruses, Spyware & other Nasties Forum for more information.

I was already running all those spy/ad ware programs so I ran hijack this which gave me this log

Use Hijackthis to remove these ones...reboot and check...

O6 - HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel present

The rest on the list are fine, you can add them to the ignore list if you like, makes things easier for future checks.

If it still doesnt work, check if the above have reappeared after reboot...

Please help me

I can't change my homepage and used every option.
I did everything to change my homepage but it is
still going back to the previous one. Whats more interesting was when I tried to change the startup programs in the msconfig that might be affecting the homepage they went back to the original ones as soon as I restarted the computer. It's like everything I try to change it keeps going back to what it was.

What should I do?

It is infected with CWS. Download CW Shredder http://www.intermute.com/spysubtract/cwshredder_download.html and scan with it

Can u tell us which page it is directing too.

Did this, rebooted, tried to ignore it and anything else that the program does but these 2 bastards just keep coming back

"R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://portadelaidefc.com.au/

"

Any ideas?

1. In SpyBot S&D, go to the "Immunize" section.
Is "Lock IE Start Page Settings" ticked?
If so, uncheck it.

2. Re-enable the restricted homepage by making a small change in the Windows registry.

Go to START, RUN, type in: Regedit

Then navigate to this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel

In the right-hand pane, right-click the "HomePage" value, then select Modify. Change it to: 00 00 00 00

Also change either or these to zero 0 instead of 1 if present:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer] - DWORD "NoSetHomePage"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Restrictions] - DWORD "NoSetHomePage"=dword:00000001

If you don't have this key, browse to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

and in the right hand pane, double click "Local Page" and set equal to "C:\WINDOWS\System\blank.htm" (no quotes) which will hopefully set your Home Page to blank and then allow you to subsequently modify it using Internet Options.

Exit regedit and reboot.

When you reboot, you should be able to change the home page again.
