    I keep trying to change the url address for my home page and it keeps going back to Pandora.com. I am not sure why, I never had this problem before. I have tried every avenue to change it but then it just goes back to the Pandora website. Can anyone tell me if there is a setting that I need to change in order for the change to stick?

    Thanks anyone for your help

    You could have something running that automatically changes your homepage back to Pandora.com. See Post 770388 for a simple tool to check what gets start when you boot your system. You may be able to identify something in there. If that does not help you can try using the TrendSecure | TrendMicro™ HijackThis™ Overview. NOTE: See Post 717163 for what to do with a HiackThis log file.

    Did you set Pandora.com as your homepage or was it reset to that without your knowledge ?? Do you have any antimalware software running that prevents your homepage from being changed ??

    It sounds like you have had your homepage hijacked, and perhaps some other problems created, by some form of malware.
