For some reason my internet homepage keeps getting changed to a p*rn site and 5 p*rn sites are added to my favorites when i reboot. ( i have no idea how this got on) I've tried ad-aware, spy bot, nortan antivirus and so on and nothing has been able to find a get rid of this problem. Also just today my nortan antivirus has stoped working. I'm no longer able to turn on the autoprotect. Please some one help me.

I would run these scans

http://www.spywareinfo.com/xscan.php
http://doxdesk.com/parasite

Then install http://download.com.com/3000-2144-10194058.html?tag=lst-0-1 upgrade, immunize, search and destroy

You might want to install this  http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=regprot  everytime something wants to be added to the registry, a popup will appear telling you what it is
You might want this for future use also  http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download
Create an account so you can be sent the activation code before installation.

The free version has no background process, but it will scan your computer thoroughly
