    Start Page Locked

    Somehow I really screwed up my Internet Explorer

    I cannot get the START PAGE to go anywhere except to someplace called h*tp://searchweb2.com/

    I have cleaned the registry a few times, and changed the start page there manually, but no matter what I do, it goes back to that searchweb2 page.

    Does anyone have a clue as to where to find a cure?

    Some of the nastiest ones out their need specific removal tools because neither Spybot nor Ad-aware can get rid of them.

    I got SpySubtract (I bought it) and it found a bunch of things, but not the right ones. I now just got HiJackThis and will give that a go. I am sure I will figure this out, sooner or later with all of the excellent help I am getting.

    Once I do, I will then be able to share my new found knowlege with someone else. Which is the correct way of things.

    Thank you.
