Solved homesweetim.cometc has taken over my home page.

Specs: Windows 7
I accidentally downloaded 'sweetim' programmes. They have hijacked my home page and I've got rid of several of them but this is tenaciously still my home page instead of Google.

✔ Best Answer
A lot of programs, now give you the choice to install toolbars & other during the install. Either uncheck these items during install, or use Custom.

Lets start here & post the logs please.

1: Run AdwCleaner
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivi...
http://www.softpedia.com/progScreen...

Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.
Close all open programs and internet browsers.
Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
Click on Delete.
Confirm each time with Ok.
Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.

2: Run Junkware Removal Tool

Now I have 'searchbabylon' as my home page instead of google.
I tried to disable but it is still there.
thanks for your help tho.
Ok, halabloodyluja!
I am very grateful to you, now there is only google,
I also have a whole new colourful home page thanks to something I found on my travels into my computer (whole day long!) at google chrome apps store.
Alls well that ends well.

I would try running malwarebytes, install it, let it update, run a full scan, if it finds things right click in the check box and select "check all items" or you can manually check em off depending on numbers, you may have to restart. Similar to the above, but maybe this will work. Did you try manually resetting your home page after you ran the above scans? It likely will not automatically return to google, you will have to set it again as your home page. Not sure what browser you are using but do a search for whatever browser "how do I set my home page in IE 9 or what have you". In the set up options you can uncheck the "real time free trial"
