Hijacked By Grokster

The other day my wife decided to install Grokster and now Internet Explorer is hijacked. By this I mean any time I start IE in the address bar it says enter Keyword or web address. If I enter anything but www.***.com I am taken to an ingsearch page. I am also unable to use the Ctrl+Enter short cut. I have uninstalled Grokster and run SpyBot. SpyBot found a few things so I deleted them and IE worked as it should. I rebooted and IE was hijacked again, so I ran SpyBot again and it found the same thing: IGetNet (4 instances). Again removed and again a vicious circle. Please help, hw do I remove this problem?

P.S.
Also the problem does not happen with OPERA or MOZILLA.

running XP pro sp1

* evil laughter * That's why my PC requires a password on boot, which none of my family members will either figure out/hack.

Try Adware 6...maybe that will help. Clear your cookies, cache, temp files, everything.

Try running "msconfig" in the run dialog box and click on the "Startup" tab. Maybe there is a program running from there.

And Praise bet unto Ad-aware. This great program has freed me from my hijackers. Thanks for the program idea.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
