Try getting HiJack This v1.99. Then scan, etc. and then find that address in the list check the box, then fix. Hope this helps.

TaskManager doesn't display homepages, and alot of Spyware is hidden from Taskmanager and HiJack This gives you the folder, etc. that the program is in.

you could just right click the I.E icon , scroll down to properties....then find target.

once there, right click again, properties....in advanced...uncheck all the boxxes & click apply.

also check the RUN & RUN ONCE folder's in the registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE --> SOFTWARE --> MICROSOFT --> WINDOWS --> RUN

right below that one should be the RUN ONCE folder.

just delete the one's in their you think are giving you problems. But before you do, do an export of the item your deleting ...just incase .
