anybody know what would cause internet explorer to reset it's home page to res://mshp.dll/index.html#37049 on every reboot and underline words on every web site like "books" and "insurance" making them to links to "goto: books" and shit like that?
I disabled third-party browser extenstions and that didn't stop it. hrm.

Spyware. Go to lavasoft.com and download AdAware.

I already have AdAware. I am in the know, ya know. ;)

Maybe Spybot S&D will work better....

I hear SpyBot sucks. Have you run antivirus software lately?

Avram likes Spybot, but he's a geek.
The fact is, you sorta need to run both of them because each is gonna miss some things.
I like AdAware, but I just downloaded and ran Spybot and it found 121 things that AdAware had missed in my numerous AdAware scans.
You can't argue with results!
*hugs spybot*
spybot is cold and unresponsive
*hugs cuddly adaware instead*

I've run ad-aware three times
the only thing is it can't delete one file. I can't either. I go to it in and click delete and it won't work. that is suspicitious. all from one little file though?

One never knows. I don't see how it could just not delete. Hmmm.

It's weird! I say 'delete' and it sits there and then in a second pops up with "make sure it's not write-protected". ?!?! no! What's is the dillio?

I really couldn't say. Sounds like a virus to me.

Do it! Do it!

Thankee. It came from some German site: http://www.vivaplus.tv/vidu/creator6.html

You can get them so that they blink, but I can't read German, so I couldn't handle it. Was ist dast?

Did you notice my other icon? with the kitty?
and I can't figure how to get the eye blinking. It's in flash. I could only think to save it as a still image.
