speaking of registry ,,, i began with this problem first and well, ive gotten rid fo the viruses,however, i cant seem to locate the right registry location for my IE default hompage..

where in the registry can i locate the exact location so that i can change the homepage..---ive tried <currentuser/software/ms/ie/searchand urlsearch> also a few other locations..but still the same result:rolleyes:

ive tried trendmicro..they didnt even detect it ... tried NOD32... no detection..decided to use NAV04 trilaware... they detected but somehow there was one file in the "recyclerprotect..something" folder which i cant seem to find to manualy delet...

ive been able to get rid of the viruses but that homepage **it is ****ing me off,,, im not sure if im locating the correct registry value.

when editing the registry (virus purposes) does it always have to be done through safemode..... ??/
