    Bug (IE 6)

    Seems that in spite of every effort to avoid it..I have unloaded a small bug that changes my home page address to one of those portals (from Britney to Gambling....). That page will be the default until I change it to something different. Needless to say that immediately after I start the Internet Exporer one more time..the old portal address is back. Where could the bug that is sensing and changing the address be residing? AV didn't pick it up...Doesn't IE have -like other Office applications- some sort of auto exec upon loading??
    Thanks in advance... .

    You might find this thread at Net-Integration of interest.
    There are other threads there about Browser Hijacking that you could do a "search" for.

    Have a Great day!!!
