Spy Trooper has captured my Home directory for Internet Explorer
Browser.  No matter what I change my Home Page address to, it always
gets redirected to   I have tried
"Spy Bot Search & Destroy" and Microsoft "Windows Defender" and they
can not fix the problem.  No one really seems to know how to fix this
virus/bug/spy/rootkit or what ever people want to call it.  1. How do
I regain control of my IE Browser Home Page.  2. Who do I report this
company/web page to for its criminal behavior.
