I am using Internet Explorer via Windows XP.  My home page continues to change to a page I do not want no matter what I do.  I have installed & ran Spybot, Ad-aware, CWshredder, & my Hijackthis log is posted below.  I also have a little bit of a problem with pop-ups.  Can you please help me?

Thanks,
Jeff

I followed the steps to get rid of the res:// hijacker home page problem & seemed to work.  I am now able to set my home page to where I want it & it will not change without me doing it, so that is good.  However, the only thing that I notice different in the way my computer is acting is that I can no longer see the other peolple on my network.  I am in an office that has about 6 or 7 computers hooked to a router, via which we can share files.  The weird thing is - I believe the others in my office are able to access my computer.  It had to be something I did when fixing the home page problem.  Could you please help me.

Thanks,
Jeff
