When I shutdown my XP box it pulls up the end task, Win Min is not responding, then after reboot my start page of Internet Explore always reverts back to: http://www.find4u.net/main.htm.

Here is what I have done.

1. Virus scan--many times (Dat files are current)
2. Run at least 3 different spy ware removal tools ( I would suggest trying this, you might be sick at the junk they can get you with)
3. run scf/ scannow and overwrote the good IE dll files
4. Have XP firewall on and Mcafee internet protection on.

Do you have winmin.exe on your disk?

If it hijacks your homepage on reboot then there is something in your startup file. It may also add unwanted websites to your favorites page. Go to
c:/documents and settings/all users/start menu/programs/start up/   and check for MSupdate.exe (or something like it). Check the properties of this file. If they are blank then its not a Microsoft file its a Trojan.
