    Unremovable Spyware! 22nd Jul 04 at 9:45 PM
    How can I deal with a hijacked browser start-up page (a crappy search-engine thing)? Ad-Aware 6.0 "deletes" it, but it's always there again whenever I next log-on. Changing the start up page via Tools/Internet options hasn't helped to get rid of it either. I've also tried getting rid of it with Spybot 1.3 too, without any success. Indeed Spybot doesn't even detect it!

    I'm not an expert, so I don't want to have to re-format my hard disk if I can get away without having to do so. Any suggestions please? Am I doomed to being permanently spied upon? :'(
