Default Home Page Keeps Changing

  Andy1964 07:28 16 Mar 2004

My default home page is freeserve but it sometime changes to some poxy search engine that i've never heard off. When this search engine appears as the default page it also throws a load of porn / gabling web sites into my favorite folder.
Tried using AVG / Trojan software but hasnt found anything.
Any ideas on what is causing this and how to get over it?

Use Ad-aware or spybot, these should find the offending files and programs and remove them for you. click here and click here , both are free.

This is known as home page hijacking and you can find all the info here along with registry edits and programs to make it impossible for this to happen again.
