    :mad:
    Hi all, was looking at naughty sites the other day for a Win95 serial code and after I got out of it (many popups later) and had downloaded a couple of serial generators which didn't work anyway, discovered that myYahoo.com.au homepage had been replaced by something called Smartsearch.ws which has about 6 things on it (all ads )...can't search for anything else
    Despite me resetting in Internet Options it returns , searched for all files with that name and deleted but as I did they all re-appear
    After running spywear remover remover which did't get rid of it. I'm stumped!!
    Please help and thanks
