    Run one, or both of these programs and see what happens. Also try runnnig a virus scan and monitoring the programs currently in memory, starting up in msconfig, and entered into the run keys in the registry. Look for suspicous entries.

    Thanks to every friend:
    I download spybot and remove some problem,
    but it can't able to recover my IE main webpage,
    Ha,Ha, now I find a very easy way :

    1, enter IE's property ,
    2, enter web safe ,
    3, enter restricted website ,
    4, include above two websites in restricted item.

    now my main webpage is cleanning, hahaaaaaaaaaa!

    True it can be that your homepage is back to normal but you didnt solve the actual problem, it is still there but you are just covering it up by going around the problem....

    I personnaly would still look on how to completely get rid of it, in the meanwhile you can indeed use your method, but for "Computerīs sake" try and get rid of the actual problem....

    Greets,
