    Basically, it sounds like you need a spyware remover/ad blocker.

    Lavasoft's Ad Aware is probably the most well known ad blocker I've seen. This Google search can help you find others if you would prefer something else.

    Also I would install winpatrol. www.winpatrol.com
    With this installed it should ask you if you want your homepage changed each time something tries to change it.

    Try the mozilla browser it's capable of stopping popups and other annoying stuff. It's also the best browser of the year 2003!!! Have fun.

    Hi,

    You seem quite unprotected so you must get a firewall and antivirus, and keep them up to date.

    http://www.wildersecurity.com

    Try "Browser Hijack Blaster"...........................It could fix your problem.

    Sometimes this crap gets into the Windows Hosts file:

    http://www.webattack.com/get/hostadmin.html

    Try "Host Administrator"

    Certainly go for http://www.diamondcs.com.au

    Get "Registry Prot"................................It helps if you don't let them in in the first place

    And: http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/index.html Get the "Hijack This" application.

    Do get "Win Patrol" from BillP Studios, as already suggested. Check out all its features, it does a lot more than protect the browser settings.

    Just a few ideas..........hope they help

    Cheers
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
