hi, my mate, honest, has had his homeage hijacked to a porn site which I cannot change to a decent web page. Everytime I change it under options it changes back - I try downloading spybot but always the files are corrupt. Any ideas and can I get an onlinne spyware scan that will remove spyware?
He is running mcafee but cannot see virus def update button - he lives 30+miles away so it is done by phone, not easy when it is his first computer.
