ie6 keeps opening home page

  lamgas 23:39 26 Jun 2004

A friend asked me to look at his machine running windows xp with ie6. He has a tiscalli dial up connection. Each time he connects to the internet ie6 loads the home page and then opens a new window with a new home page, he has up to 62 windows open. I have tried an ie6 repair and restoring to an earlier date with no success. Can anybody help please

If this is a new install of Windows, you need to install a popup blocker and spyware software. I had the same problem a whil ago untill I installed these.

open internet explorer and click:

tools/internet options/general and look at the address in the home page box. what is it? you can set this to what ever you want. w ww. google. (without spaces) is a good starting point for most people.

as above a pop up blocker may help if the home page contains lots of pop ups but if it does i wouldnt be happy with it and would change it to another address.

also as above its possable that the home page has been hijacked by spyware. download adaware, spybot and cwshreader click here click here click here update before running and remove all they find then reset the home page.
