I have exactly the same problem, hijacking my home page to esafe, and cant quite see from the thread what exactly you did to fix it. my problem has now progressed. I have a dial up connection, and now when i click on the internet explorer on my desk top, the esafe web page appears, but I can not dial up to the internet. i am ring my service provider for help with the dialing tonight, but need to get rid of the hijacked home page.
I have purchased the paretologic spyware today, but am unable to access the internet to run it yet.

Hi, Welcome to TSG!!

I've moved your posts to a thread of your own so please reply here.

Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.

Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
