    My daughter dropped here laptop off during spring break for me to work on. She had vroom take over the homepage and all sorts of searches poping up on their own. I used http://www.bleepingcomputer.com and the HijackThis program Fishman had mentioned to recover my daughters laptop from the takeover. After running the Hijack and sending the log to the site I had everything cleared and running within a days time. They also went over what protection she was running and gave tips on adjustments. One thing I learned was to run the Hijackthis file from your normal running computer and save it. If you start having trouble you can run a new file and compare. Makes troubleshooting much easier. No cost just donation if you think it was worthy.
    Lots of good information in their Forums also.
    Just passing it on for others.
