Hi Sue Do a full virus check to start with better safe than sorry. then clear all your cookies/do a disk clean up. Go to your exploer icon r/click select properties then check to see if the web address you want to go to is your default. If not type it in and press apply.
Hope this helps tc pat

You can't do better than to set Google as your default search engine - click here , follow the instructions carefully.

You may need to reboot for the changes to take effect. If the Quick search engine is still displayed, then there is another problem. Post back, and we will sort it out.

If you know the virus, check with Norton as the virus may have put entries in the Registry to alter the default homepage.

Had this problem myself.

May not be a virus but could be spyware. Try Spybot click here
