If you are referring to the home page that displays when you open Internet Explorer, you have been the victim of ad-ware.

Start by downloading and running either AdAware from www.lavasoft.de or Spybot Search and Destroy from www.download.com

Then, you might want to install Start Page Guard

If a program has hijacked your dial-up connection, running the spy-ware checkers should help remove that also.

Turn off system restore if it is used in your os.

Download, update, and run the following.

Your Antivirus Software

Spybot:

Ad-Aware:

CWshredder:

Or
http://tinyurl.com/2k642
Look for the file in English CWShredder.exe

Hijack This:

Hijack This is useful in that it shows what is currently loading on startup. You must know what is good and what is bad. Once you check it and fix it is gone. So be sure.

Run Your Antivirus again

I have had to boot into safe mode and run these.

Good Luck Lee
