Help - Runonce.msn url on Dell machine

So after just spending 1 hour and 4 mins before giving up on the Dell business "help" line I turn to you.

I have changed my default homepage and yet when I open IE7 on my new dell vostro I get the following url:

http:/runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx/

This is meant to be a preference setting url but it doesnt work and wont go away.

Anyone any ideas where I can find whatever is launching this so I can grab it, gouge its eyes out and then burn it?


I would be REALLY grateful for any assistance

Thanks

Try running a scan with Hijackthis click here and untick it's entry in there. It'll save searching the registry.

Thanks guys for such a speedy response.

I wonder if I would still be on hold with dell by now?

Thanks again
