My homepage keeps on changing :(

January 1, 2011 at 04:03:32
Specs: Windows 7
Recently my homepage keeps on changing to http://google.apsolo.com/

I have microsoft security essentials installed, unfortunately it has some how stopped functioning and i am guessing it is because of this spyware or virus of some sort. It also keeps on turning off the microsoft security center service. Whenever i try to "on" it a message pops up and says "the microsoft security center service can't be started".

I hope this doesn't get worse.

MSE is extremely hard to remove from a PC. You may try removing it with revo uninstaller which will let you remove all the registry items.
Then try Avast Free:

Also run an updated quickscan with malwarebytes:

remove all it finds.

I have downloaded avast and malwarebytes from the links you gave me.

It had detected threats and was deleted, however my homepage in both firefox and internet explorer keeps changing to http://google.apsolo.com/
