    For some reason, my computer sets "global finder" as its home page when I
    would prefer to use "google".

    How do I get rid of this problem?

    If you cannot set your home page in internet options (greyed out), I could
    send you a key to fix it. (submit your real emailaddress please, unless it
    is ? If it is, you will propably get numerous unsollicited
    emails offering viagra, breast enlargement and loads of $$ from Kabila's
    cousin).

    I can set my home page to Google in "Internet Options"/ "Use Current"....but
    not for long. This Global Finder overrules my preferences and upon start-up
    I find myself facing this unwanted page. And yes I also receive annoying
    Viagra, Breast Enlargement and Dollar Scam advertisements.

    Can you post a fix?

    Yes, it's a hi-jacker. Have a look at this page:
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/cws/
    particularly the links at the bottom.
    You should have AdAware and Spybot S&D as part of your regular
    maintenance, anyway; and CWShredder seems to be recommended particularly
    for this infection (although I've not used it).
