Damn, once that shit gets in it can be a BITCH to get rid of. I had something like that before and it didn't go away until I reformatted. Good luck with it.

also make sure your IE is patched. My wifes 98 box got some shit loaded due to a weakness in IE that can allow sites to load software.

adaware is great for removing stuff.

I also like norton/symantec for AV and I use the google toolbar to block popups.

I used a program called CW Shredder. It fixed the same problem that you have. Mine was also doing something weird. Instead of just being [http://....] mine was [http://ehttp.cc/?www.......] It fixed it whatever it was.

Cool Web Search is a BITCH to get rid of with anything except the CW Shredder. When it got into Nicks computer I ran everything I could think of, to no avail, before stumpbling onto it.

I downloaded hi jacker it took it off. But it came back

I get this site called trytechnical.com site that keeps coming back to my homepage. Sometimes it's a site called teenhgpics wtf!!

This hit won't go away. I found a file on my harddrive named "link" but I delete it and it still comes back.

Shitt I want to throw this lap top through the window.

Try googling that particular page. Several times that I come up with a weird EXE file in my task manager, or get bizarre homepages, there is someone else who got the same thingy, and has a solution.

sound like eather spyware or adware on your computer, bulletsoft makes some software to remove the software. lol o and when you go to the porn sites don't download their java applets or any "plugin" to view the page. that is where you typical get it from.

Download, install, update, and run Ad-Aware. It will remove most browser-hijackers that are out now. It works, it's free, and it doesn't fuck up your other stuff.
