    Hijacked Homepage (XP Home)

    Without being able to search, I'm not sure if this topic has been addressed. My homepage has been hijacked to www.weather.com (s/b www.excite.com). A search of the registry only revealed a listing under Search Assistant. The list looks like recent search criteria. Being unsure of the source, I un-installed the program "Search Assistant". After rebooting the machine, not only was the Search Assistant section still in the registry, but Explorer loads directly to www.weather.com. My virus scan is up-to-date & clean. Is there a way to fix this?
