    Short of reformatting the hard drive (which I think would be the quickest way to solve this problem) you will need a registry cleaner.

    then once your computer is working again get a software firewall, AND a anti-virus. then STOP VISITING PORN SITES!!!.

    You need to make sure you are free of viruses and trojans, you need to run a full system scan on your computer. this may remove some or all, take a piece of paper and write down the ones that were not deleted or removed. Click start ,then search,

    then all files and folders, type in the name that still showed up find

    out where it is still hiding then go and delete it then go to the next place or type in the next virus or trojan, then when there is no more go and empty the recycling bin. Then run a full system scan again ,when there is no more threats restart your computer.

    this should help restore your home page.

    Your PC is infected with a browser hijacker. Use these scans to remove it.

    Spybot - Search & Destroy detects and removes spyware, a relatively new kind of threat not yet covered by common anti-virus applications. Spyware silently tracks your surfing behaviour to create a marketing profile for you that is transmitted without your knowledge to the compilers and sold to advertising companies. If you see new toolbars in your Internet Explorer that you haven't intentionally installed, if your browser crashes inexplicably, or if your home page has been "hijacked" (or changed without your knowledge), your computer is most probably infected with spyware. Even if you don't see the symptoms, your computer may be infected, because more and more spyware is emerging. Spybot-S&D is free, so there's no harm giving it a try to see if something has invaded your computer.

    SUPERAntiSpyware is the most thorough scanner on the market. Our Multi-Dimensional Scanning and Process Interrogation Technology will detect spyware that other products miss! SUPERAntiSpyware will remove ALL the Spyware, NOT just the easy ones!

    Easily remove over 100,000 pests such as SmitFraud, Vundo, WinFixer, SpyAxe, SpyFalcon, WinAntiVirus, AntiVermins and thousands more!

    Make sure after you download any of these, that you update them.

  • The best thing to do is to format ur pc and install ur os again. That is the fastest method coz spyware removal takes about 4 days and there is no point is spending that much of time and energy.

    Hope that helps.

    a reformat is not a good option or recommended for this as a answer has it above.

    basically all you have is a hijacker

    simple fix

    adaware se personal its free

    get update, reboot and do a full scan

    spybot is also a good choice

    after scan and its clean reset homepage

    What borwser are you using? Internet Explorer is really messed up with all of that. If you're using IE, I suggest going to Firefox, then when asks to make default browser check yes and DON'T transfer all your favorites and stuff. Then go to Add/Remove programs and get rid of IE.

    Get an anti-spyware, and a good anti-viruse, i would advise you ad-aware and Norton anti-virus or McAfee, and try to get the Comodo firewall... Good luck

    google 'hijackthis' and download the free program. it finds spyware that adaware and spybot can't find.

    when all else fails, format and reload.
