Yet Another Home Page Problem


J

Jim

Hello,

My IE home page keeps getting set to:

res://xayfe.dll/index.html#96676

I have tried:

1. Resetting the home page with Tools -> Internet Options

2. Going into regedit and replacing all occurrances
of "xayfe.dll/..." with "www.yahoo.com" (my preferred
home page).

3. Running Adware

4. Running Spybot

5. Rebooting

Nothing seems to work.

Help!!!

Thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim :)

See the following:

You may have Hijackware as well. Try the following it will only take a few
minutes:

HiJackThis: - Free

Go to
http://computercops.biz/downloads-cat-14.html ,
or
http://tinyurl.com/2oce8
and download HiJackThis. Unzip to a folder other than your Desktop or the
Temp folder, doubleclick HiJackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log"
button. Press that, save the log some place you remember where it is.
Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so DO NOT fix
anything yet.

Open a the copy of your log in NotePad and made a copy. Then you can go here
to post you log:
http://forum.aumha.org/

You will need to register to open a new thread to post you log. It is free,
and no one will Spam you, it is one of many that provides this service. Once
registered, go to the HiJackThis section on the forum list and click to
open. Then start a new post and post your log. The experts there will
analyze the log and report back the results. Please allow at least a few
hours or a days time for a response, depending on when you post the log.

Remember, you must return to the HJT site to get your answer. It is a good
idea to click the "Notify" box so that you will get an electronic
notification by e-mail to let you know when a response has been posted.
But, you must still return to the site of your answer
