My homepage keeps being changed every time I turn my computer back on. I have tried to change it by going to internet options in internet explorer and typing my preferred homepage address (www.comcast.net) in the homepage box, but once I reboot, it automatically changes to the address adfreesearch.com. I have tried editing my registry by removing any references to this web site, but once I reboot, it sets itself up as my homepage again. Is there some other way that I can finally get my own homepage back? Are my suspicions correct that this is some type of spyware program? I've tried the adaware program, but that didn't seem to correct the problem.
