Internet Explorer Problem - Is it a Virus?

  murgle 17:21 19 Jan 2004

I turned my Norton Internet Security off to test some forms I'm building for my Websie, problem is I forgot to turn it on again and started browsing without protection.

Now everytime I open IE it opens a page at the following URL as the home page "res://mshp.dll/index.html#22776",

Everytime I change it back to google (my usual home page), and restart my computer the home page is reset to "res://mshp.dll/index.html#22776"

Also I keep getting popups although it is set to stop pop ups in Internet Security.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks again
