    Home Page in IE (Windows XO Pro, I.E. version 6.0.

    Windows XO Pro, I.E. version 6.0.2800.xpsp2.3030422-1603 Whew! WHAT a mouthfull!

    A couple of months ago, I.E. all of a sudden started ignoring my desired home page and defaulting to a MS search page when I open the browser. It does this on a irregular basis. Sometimes it opens on my selected default for days at a time, then all of a sudden, every time I open it, it's on the MS search page. I to into Tools/Internet Options, General tab, and reset it. Next time I open the browser, maybe it'll open to the page I want, maybe I won't. I'm getting tired of having to reset my default page all the time. Anyone have ANY clue as to what's causing this, and how I can make my home page permanent until _I_ decide to change it?

    Thanks!!

    Take a look at <post#=296439>post 296439</post#>. If that doesn't help, do a search in the IE forum for "hijack" (no quotes).

    Phil,

    Thanks again for your suggestion. I downloaded the program, ran it, found I don't know how much malware (and this with Zone Alarm and Pest Patrol, too!), deleted it, and it seems to have cured the problem.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to direct me to the post.

    Jo

    Don't get me started on ZoneAlarm. <img src=/S/blackteeth.gif border=0 alt=blackteeth width=20 height=20> Seriously, it will not stop malware, it will only hide your computer from the Internet at large and prompt you when something wants to connect. PestPatrol I have no experience with, but all of the scanners are only as good as their last update - and the last time that you ran it.
