I have windows XP and starting today, on the internet my homepage is yahoo. but when I go online, instead of yahoo, an ad page comes up from Malware Wipe. I have yahoo specified as my home page on internet options, but this stupid ad page keeps coming up instead. How do I get rid of it. I have used AD-Aware and Spybot, but I still have this problem. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
