My IE browser default hpmepage has been hijacked by www.nkvd.us/shtm-"smart-finder". I know it is imbedded in the registry. How do I remove it permanently. Appreciate any help in getting rid of this pest.

on a side note you may want to try mozilla's [url=***********.mozilla.org/products/firefox/]firefox it comes with a popup blocker, tabbed browsing and doesn't suffer from browser hijacking, at least it hasn't happened to me yet!

just FYI---Spybot (version 1.2) has NOT updated their reference files since early March as they are currently working on finalizing a new version 1.3, which will be out "shortly" (but they haven't said when). New updates will appear with version 1.3 so this is possibly why Spybot hasn't detected the malware you described yet.
