My IE6 homepage (WIN98 SE) keeps being reset to andrewlinks.com So I think there is some trojan/spyware which keeps running and resetting it.
I have done the following;
Run Antivirus software - no virus found
Run spybot search and destroy (after getting latest definitions) - Fixed some cookies
Run Adaware - fixed items found
Run Regedit and reset and homepage references to andrewlinks
Reset Home page in IE6/Internet options back to about:blank

But still when I re-boot homepage is back to andrewlinks.com

I dont know if this is harmful and not knowing is worrying enough - but it is really annoying

Any help to remove this would be greatly appreciated

Please download HijackThis http://www.greyknight17.com/spy/HijackThis.exe - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Post the hijackthis.log file in the HijackThis Log Help forum. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

Also, Open HJT and click on Misc Tools.

Under System Tools, click on Open hosts file manager.

After it loads, click on Open in Notepad. Copy and paste the contents of that Notepad file in the same new thread.
