Homepage won't stay changed

  C_N 13:54 15 Jul 2004

My freind's computer is used constantly for browsing, so, he at most times, has an extensive selection of viruses etc. But one problem that he cannot solve is that his homepage is always set to some rubbish search engine and when ever he changes it, it quickly goes back. He has the same kind of problem with his Favorites, even if he deletes certain links they always reappear. Any ideas?
