Re: Home Page Hijacked

Registry entry from xcator not found in Vista H.P.32bit

IE 7.0.6001.1800

I have scanned with Malicious Software Detector and four other malicious software detectors, and virus scanners, deleted temp files, cookies, cleaned the drive, set new home pages like yahoo, etc, to no avail, although it is interesting that the only Home Page that yields this issue is the page.  It disappeared for a little while after the Microsoft Malicious Software scan.   This problem is spreading to other sites.  Perhaps reinstall IE or upgrade to IE8???  I want to know what this is about.  I want ontological news.

My home page : http// is redirected to a dell url link which has the content shown below.  The error page says it is a Google error and cites the inability to locate the url ( dell-usuk/afe ) as shown below in the copy:

Re: Home Page Hijacked

I found the culprit, in my case, was an entry in Webroot prohibiting the change of Home Page in IE.  With that having been reconfigured, the problem is gone like truth in politics.
