    And how do I get rid of it? I thought I deleted the required files, but even with my internet options setting of google.com for a homepage, I still get mywebsearch as the homepage. AdAware says im clear, running hijack this now.

    Thanks, but I've done all that, 2x just to make sure, and I still can't get my home page set to google. The toolbar is gone, but I can't get my homepage away from mywebsearch. It's set correctly in internet options on the control panel.

    Did you do step 5? Try Malwarebytes and do it in safe mode.
