Still having the same problem where I can't change my home page.

Note: When I start up I get runtime error 2 at 00004AD4- I've had this for a while so it is not a new issue.

Hi,
Still having the same problem where I can't change my home page.

Which browser are you having problems with, FireFox Internet Explorer or both?
Some additional info- When I run the malwarebytes program I still have an identfied threat


Could you please do a MBAM scan using these settings:

  • Launch the application, Check for Updates >> Perform Full scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Check all items except items in the C:\System Volume Information folder... and click Remove Selected.
    Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts, click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply.
  • The log can also be found here:
    C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

I've completed the reset, but I still seem to have the same problem with the Search.gboxapp.com forcing itself to be my home page.

Immediately after the reset, Microsoft becomes the home page, but after exiting and going back into IE9, the babylon search page comes back.

Note, when I did a quick find with regedit, I found some links to gboxapp.com. I didn't make any changes and won't do any changes unless instructed by yourself.
