  Sgt Apone 21:23 25 Sep 2007

Ok my father-in-law went online the other day and ended up with a little something on his pc he didnt want. Now norton deleted the virus but something else has been left behind. His homepage was Orange, his internet provider but now his homepage is click here and he cant remove it. He has been into internet options and it says there that orange is still his homepage. He has used the uninstall programs in control panel and removed it from there. Its still coming up as his home page, he has tried opening orange page and said it wont work right and he cant set anything else as homepage. does anyone know what this is? how to get rid of it? thanks.

To set the chosen home page you have to actually have it on show in your browser and then, from Internet Options>Tools>General tab, select Use Current Page.
