this is my issue: everytime I open Internet explorer this seach page comes up
http://your-searcher.com/index.htm.

I used adaware, but still am clueless on how to remove it.

I went into IE and changed the start page to blank, but still it keeps coming up.

Here is the search page http://your-searcher.com/index.htm

and I have a NEO searchbar that I cannot remove. I admit I know a bit about computers, but sometime you gotta ask for help.


Thanks

go to: www.mozilla.com

download firefox, import all your bookmarks(it lets you do this during install)

quit using IE, and enjoy life with a better browser

You've been pwoned.

Download Spybot search and destroy. www.safer-networking.org/en/mirrors/index.html


Oh, and stop using IE, every piece of spy, ad and scumware in the universe is written to take advantage.

Get Firefox, never look back.

You got nailed with adware/spyware. If adaware doesn't remove it, try Spybot Search & Destroy.

Oh, and like Va_Dinger said, stop searching porn.

BHOcop should be able to get rid of the toolbars.

Use Google with the name of whatever page keeps popping up. Usually they'll have instructions on deletting it.

Use Knoppix or Morphix when browsing porn sites.

At the very least, use Mozilla instead of IE. For EVERYTHING.

Spyware. Read this.
And then remove it.

Oh, and ditch IE for Firefox or Opera...

You have a browser hijacker.

Normal tools like Adaware won't remove them.

Google for browser hijacker and find software to remove it

Also, stop looking at porn.
