Internet Home Page Query

  forexes 21:31 13 Dec 2004

Everytime I log on to my ISP(Tiscali) the home page which appears is> and I cannot get it to change back via Tools/Internet Options/HomePage. This is just a search engine, but I have never heard of it before and am worried. I can use the internet as usual, but this home page is not what I want and worries me in case it is one of these premium line scams. Anyone help?

If you are on dial up, you should take steps to protect yourself:

Also do you have any anti spyware/trojan programs installed?

If you are on broadband disconnect the plug that goes into the phone line, if you haven't already done so, that will stop any dialler.

Then run those programs in my last links, if you still get no joy, there is more you can do, just come back here and let us know.

What Valvegrid meant to say, I'm sure, was disconnect the dialup modem from the phone line :-)
