    IE 6.0 - Major help needed

    I have some computer knowledge. I've programmed a little in Java. I'm running Windows XP Professional. My Internet Explorer home page has been changed and I can't change it back permanantly. Also, some 'unscrupulous' web sites have been put under my favorites and even though I delete them they keep coming up. I am also running CA eTrust Antivirus version 7.0.139. Let me know if there's something I can change on that to help myself or if there something else I can download to make the fix.

    Thanks,
    Joel

    Greetings:

    For starters, CA eTrust Antivirus is total crap. Get some real anti-virus software running on your box ASAP.

    Secondly, you probably have some spyware that's living in a state of uninterrupted bliss on your box. Try downloading some of the anti-spybot software that's freely available on the internet, such as Spybot Search & Destroy, available from http://www.safer-networking.org/

    Hope that helps!
