I set up a PC at work today. A new HP AMD 64. The default browser is HP/AOL. When I change it, it redirects back to that site. Hijack This shows the redirect, but when I remove it, it reappears on the next scan as if nothing was done. I'm kind of embarassed that I can't fix a simple thing like setting my company's home page on a new PC, but there you go. Any thoughts? I can't post a logfile until tomorrow.

Ran Adaware, Spybot, CC Cleaner, CW Shreder, Trojan Hunter, Spyware Blaster and Trend Micro House Call to no avail. :whistling:

hey there Chris and Welcome to Geeks to Go!!! i see you have joined geek u,(a very wise choice, :whistling: )

um the first thing to try whould be to change your homepage in the browser itself. seeing as you have done that with no avail, please reboot your computer and keep pressing F8, when it brings up the start up options select "Safe Mode" then run Hijack This, and click the enterie with the "hijacked" homepage.

hope this helps! :blink:
