My start page in the Internet properties is "about:blank", and when I click on internet explorer a website with a search engine shows up and whenever I try to change the homepage it does it once and then it turns back to "about:blank" the next time I open Internet Explorer. I also get frequent popups even though I have google toolbar and I block popups. On the top, I noticed, "Only the best", on the popups. I've tried Hijack this, CWshredder, Pest patrol, adware, and spybot. None of them seem to help. I tried deleting the.dll file manually and when I check on Hijack this, again, there is another.dll file with a different name and it keeps going like that. Can someone plz help me? :P

yes, the.dll in your Internet Explorer/Windows directory is self replicating. I had this problem too.

Download the latest version of CWShredder (try Google for the URL) and follow all instructions carefully (Run only CWshredder and no other applications, etc...) This should fix your problems.

Or get Firefox. :P ;)

If none of those work then as a last resort you can manually remove them. Go here: http://www.doxdesk.c...lWebSearch.html and at the end is the Manual Removal section.

I've had that before. I think the problem is that it comes in different flavors. What works for one of us may not work for you because of it.
I used a prog called Xcleaner to kill it. In addition to the other link you can also check here:
