    Go to internet Options and change your home page there. Select a page you wish to make as your home page and select Use Current. Make sure that the address contains only your new home page and nothing else.

      It did not work, I also change on startup settings and appearance->show home button in chrome and it did not work also, I think it is a running virus in my computer. Even in RegEdit can't edit the Start Page in IE, Chrome, Mozilla...

      Hello and welcome to Computer Hope Forum. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.

      1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
      2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
      3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
      4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.
      5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
      6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
      7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

      If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.
      *************************************************************************
      Please download AdwareCleaner onto your Desktop. AdwCleaner

      Before starting AdwCleaner, close all open programs and internet browsers, then double-click on the AdwCleaner icon.

      To remove the files that were detected in the previous step, please click on the Clean button.



      AdwCleaner will now prompt you to save any open files or data as the program will need to reboot the computer. Please do so and then click on the OK button. AdwCleaner will now delete all detected adware from your computer. When it is done it will display an alert that explains what PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) and Adware are. Please read through this information and then press the OK button. You will now be presented with an alert that states AdwCleaner needs to reboot your computer.
      Please click on the OK button to allow AdwCleaner reboot your computer.A log will be produced. Please copy and paste this log in your next reply.

        I still would like to see the logs.

        Please download Farbar Service Scanner to the desktop and run it on the computer with the issue.
        Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

        Make sure FRST is run under administrator privileges.
        Make sure that the Whitelist section is checked.Otherwise, the log will be very long.
        You Security programs may prevent the tool from running. If this happens, disable the security program until the scan is completed.
        • Right click to run as administrator (XP users click run after receipt of Windows Security Warning - Open File). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.

        • Press "Scan".





        • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
        • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.
        • The first time the tool is run it generates another log (Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe/FRST64.exe). Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.

          I already removed the virus using UnHackMe software, it really looks suspicious at first but then I try it, it actually works.

          You can download it here: http://www.greatis.com/unhackme/

          But, thank you for helping me, I appreciate your help.

          Have A Nice Day!    ;D
