still having home page trouble

  kayell1 14:53 30 Jul 2008

When I go onto the internet my pc now goes direct to my email page for a few seconds and then on to my hone page (yahoo). I have tried using 'tools' 'internet options' and applying the home page as default but still it happens. Any advice please?

Use this click here to delete your internet browsing history files and lot of other crap as well.

That might solve it.

I had a problem a while back where my home page k ept reverting to msn page. Tried everything running antivirus,antispyware,ccleaner and nothing worked. Found the answer was to set the home page in safe mode. Never had a problem since.

thanks Clapton but CCLEANER didn't help.
thanks for response thms but can you tell me in simple words how to set the home page in safe mode?

Reboot your PC and tap the F8 key on boot up (sometimes you have to let the very first screen pass). Choose Safe Mode and allow Windows to load. Enter your password (if app) and then change your homepage via Internet Explorer properties as per usual. Reboot.

"Any more ideas please?"

Why not use a proper website as your homepage?

Try click here

See what happens then.

have you opened yahoo homepage.... tools/internet options and selected USE CURRENT you should then have only the url for yahoo homepage.

I opened the BBC home page as suggested and selected 'use current' which showed it to be the BBC home page in the box. I 'applied' and 'Okayed' and came off the internet. when i immediately went back on, the BBC home page opened first for a few seconds and the it went straight to another tab which was for my yahoo email page. This email page doesnt appear at all as an option in the homepage box in 'general' in internet options so I don't know where it is coming from and what is telling it to open up????????
