I recently encountered a problem where my homepage will not open. Every time\nI open IE or if I hit the home tab, i am redirected to a spam guard webpage.\nEven if i type in the homepage, it redirects me. If i change my homepage in\nIE options, this redirect will do the same thing with my new homepage. it\nseems to be linked to the homepage i have in options.\n\nAlso, at the same time this started happening, i have a new task on my\nbottom taskbar that keeps saying i have spam on my computer. i can't close\nthis tab, and if i scroll my mouse over it, there is no identification for\nit. even if i right click to try to close it, it still opens up IE and takes\nme to a spam guard website. how do i remove these things?
