Home Page issue

By coyledavid2003 ·
Unusual problem I am having with my home page in Internet explorer. Even after typing it in, in Tools>internet options>home page and hittng "apply"...the home page comes up to some unwanted page of sales stuff (always the same...namely...www.enjoysearch.info). This happens after a re-boot or re-start only. I suspect a Registry issue, but am not sure. Using Wins 2000. If anyone knows the answer, I'd appreciate it.
Thx in advance...

Download and run spybot search and destroy and or adaware both are free to download. They will find the culprit and delete it for you.

Tried these sites. Not help. But may use another time.
Answer I found was in Registry. Delete line from "Run" under Windows, current version. Thx anyway...

If what RCOM suggested doesn't do the trick do a search on a utility called "Hijack This".

Seems to me that your browser has been hijacked!

Good luck!
