    Have you tried Ctrl+Alt+Delete and then ending smartsearch.ws? You can also change your homepage by doing tools>internet options>then typing in your desired homepage. You can change it in windows too, but I'm not sure about the steps involved.

    use the new spybot search and destroy version 1.3 and use the immunize function, it automatcally blocks 1700+ things from getting into your system.
