Somehow whitesmoke installed their toolbar and search engine as my default. I never downloaded their software. It always resets the default when I change it. I can't find a program or anything to remove whitesmoke. Can any one help me?

I don't know how it started, but whenever I change the default on the toolbar and search engine, it changes back to whitesmoke.

Do a malware check with some malware scan programs. You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.
