    annoying trojan Trojan.Win32.Dasmin.b keeps hijacking my homepage and giving
    me pop ups, i deleted the trojan in safe mode but now i still can't seem to

    Have you tried using a program like Adaware or Spybot to get rid of the
    popups and stuff?

    Yes, normally ad-aware sorts out everything, just updating with todays
    release, see if that helps.

    But I know theres some entries i have to delete, that i just can't find, due
    to the Trojan.Win32.Dasmin.b

    Ah right, well theres nothing out of the ordinary in there, just a handfull
    of innocent apps such as norton etc

    I did spot a dodgy looking line in the microsoft, windows, current version

    StartupIDCcount59 REG_SZ on

    This dasmin trojan does some kind of counter to see how many hits i've had
    on a partiucular refferals site where vthe pop ups are coming from, and
    where my home page keeps getting set to, I think.

    Don't know wether to delete that line, and switch off my modem for a while
    to get a new IP address, everytime i leave it off for a hours, ntl seem to
    have given me a new IP when i start it all back up again.

    Don't delete that line please. If you have been hijacked, please download,
    update and run Spybot, AdAware, CWShredder at minimum.
