Home page being hijacked

I don't always add a reply to my threads to thank you guys for the help and advice on PC issues, but I do always read your replies, and usually follow your advice, so thanks!

Running Windows XP Home and IE 6.

My homepage has been hijacked (www.you-search.cc). I can change it back to my regular homepage and it stays in effect for the rest of my session. However, if I shut down IE, the next time I restart it the homepage is once again set to you-search.cc.

Any tips on fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Run Adware and get that spyware out of your computer.


Its available free at www.download.com . Type lavasoft into the search area. Lavasoft is the company that makes Adware.
