    I have internet explorer and sometimes when I restart my computer and turn the brower on my homepage is changed to something else. It's slawsearch.com, called cool web search. I have spybot 1.2 and it doesn't detect anything. I can really use some help to find a remedy for this problem, thanks, Neil.

    CRShredder

    That niffty little program should do the job.

    You might also want to check out the Computer Cops Froum. I equate them as the HTF of the PC world. My girfriend's computer had a similar problem where everytime you restarted the computer it would take you to search-space.com. It was very annoying stuff, and I took it as a personal attack when I had trouble getting rid of it. Good luck!

    And I'm not sure what they are, but there are certain programs you can remove from the Add/Remove section of Windows. Look it up at Computer Cops and they can give you a listing.

    Hehe, thanks for the info...I think that CRShredder did the job. This kind of sneakiness is really annoying.
