Browser Problem

I just woke up a week ago and my computer is automatically loading up searchcentral.cc as my "home" page. It is pissing me off and i have used ad-aware and spybot search and destroy and it has not fixed the problem. I even change the internet options to make yahoo my home and nothing. Any suggestions to fix this or folders to check to erase this crap.

Did you update the ad-aware & spybot software with new definations? Try that and run another scan, good luck.

I've used HiJackThis to help identify the issue and have been able to delete the reference to the page. Care needs to be taken when using HiJackThis...
