My machine was recently besieged by a bunch of trojans/spyware programs after clicking on a URL from a google search. I have manually edited the registry, used a couple of suggested cleaners, and spybot. Most everything has been fixed except the following:
IE default homepage is still hijacked by "Home Search" page which now make IE unusable and doesn't even close without creating an error.
And NOW when I use notepad and type a few lines it closes, no warning just BAMM its gone.
Does anyone know what's going on with my pc and how to fix it. I'm in the middle of a bunch of projects and completely ditching and reformatting has to be my last resort.
