Removing Spyware

I’m usually pretty careful when using IE, but I don’t know what happened this time. My home page was changed to “Home Search”, and links were starting to be changed around on me. My Trend Antivirus started chirping like mad.

Even Spybot couldn’t get rid of this one. I finally found these instructions on removing Home Search. It was painful, but I’m clean.

I only use IE at work, or when I have my work laptop at home. I use Mozilla on my Linux box at home. After this, I’m seriously thinking of making the switch at work.


I’m trying something new here. Talk to me on Twitter with the button above, please.
