    Security with IE

    I am haveing a problem with IE, for some reason my homepage keeps getting reset to a site that opens my cd drive and opens a text editor. I did not think much of it at first b/c i am behind a router, and norton firewall on my pc. I still dont think that i am as susceptible as the site says i am, but it has just gotten extreamly annoying.
