    Go to

    You will find a great little program there called BHODemon (BHO - Browser
    Helper Object). It is a small (~80 kbytes) executable file which will show
    you all helping or malicious objects installed in your browser and will
    also give you the option of disabling them. You don't have to install
    anything, just D/L and run. If you are not sure about something, click on
    "details" and it will help you decide if it is supposed to be there or not.

    HTH :)

    My IE browser has probably been hijacked.
    I've cleaned with Spybot and Ad Aware, the latter reported possible hijack

    Now my browser has lost most of its settings, and I cannot set my homepage,
    which is replaced with something like http:////

    When I go to Control Panel internet settings, I find all 3 options for
    setting home page greyed out.

    Please advice on what I can do to restore.
