I'm new and hoping someone here can help me.
The problem I have is something keeps adding sites to my favourites list(everytime I reopen IE!), changing my homepage, causing up pop-ups and causing windows to crach when I try to open windows explorer.
I have tried approaches in similar topics
ie. using ad-ware,CWshredder,Aboutbuster in and out of Safe Mode.

Nothing so far has shifted the problem, any help would be appreciated thanks.

Managed to resolve the problem myself with advice from other topics and a lot of bludgeoning!
I went about it via,
using Ad-aware in normal boot (not safe mode)
noting all the VX2 infected files and NOT removing anything

rebooting in safe mode
used AboutBuster and let it fix everything found,
reused ad-aware (full scan!) and let it fix everything found,
used CWshredder and let it fix everything found,

used HiJackThis and removed suspicious files
this was based on what was removed in other posts about the same problem
(I still have the back ups now to be sure!!)

Then deleted the noted down VX2 files
(these were NOT picked up by ad-aware when safe-mode was on)

re-ran all AB, ad-A and CWs, nothing found
rebooted back to normal and everything is fine now ;)
I'm now also using winpatrol dont know if it had any effect here but it seems useful

On the off chance that someone reads this, just look at the resolved cases in this forum, the information is mostly there already!
and finally a big thanks to everyone at Geeks to Go! :tazz:
