    Strange Search Engine


    When I first go to Internet Explorer, a strange search engine <www-searching.com> fills the screen. If I click on Home it goes away and my normal Start page comes up.

    I have blocked the address in Yahoo mail, and in "Per site privacy actions" in Internet Tools, but it persists.

    Yesterday I was infected by the Palikan virus, but have successfully (after five or six frustrating hours) removed it thanks to Malwarebytes and a follow-on program I downloaded and installed this evening, Hitman Pro. Despite all that the page still comes up every time I go online.

    Help?
