Two questions here: firstly, can anyone tell me in simple words what a home page is, what it does and why?
Secondly, a friend has just phoned and thinks his homepage has been hijacked. It was set as follows:
(he did tell me this down the phone, but I wrote this down as carefully as I could).
I helped him reset his page to something that I knew to be safe (his default wouldn't refault, but it's a very old computer - WIndows98, by the way). But does the above address that he had look safe? Maybe it was okay all along.
A hijack is when somthing keeps setting the home page to somwhere other that where the PC user wants it to be. And normally, keeps re-seting it as you brouse, so you keep ending up at the same unwanted place, every few minutes. GRRR time.
