Every time i boot up my computer it opens on my default web page, any body no how to stop this please. It only started doing this this week. I run win xp pro.Zebby
Look in Display Properties - Desktop - Web and untick the box "My Current Home page".
Sorry - missed a step - afetr Desktop press "Customise"
The box is already unticked
Just seeing if there any more ideas out there
Do you mean it actually goes to the home page, in Internet Explorer, or that the desktop is set with your home page as a background?
If it opens in IE, check that IE is not in the start up menu of the start menu. If still no luck check the registry:Under Machine and see Run: to see if IEXPLORE.EXE is there,
yes it actually goes to the home page, in Internet Explorer and you have to close it to go to the desk top.Gaz 25 I do not understand, Under Machine and see Run: to see if IEXPLORE.EXE is there
Go to start > Run > Type: regedit in the box provided and click Ok.The registry editor opens up:Click: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEThen a submenu appears:Click: SoftwareSubmenu appears...Then go to: MicrosoftAnother submenu appears...Go to Run, then in the list look for IEXPLORE.EXE, if there is delete this registry entry by right click and delete, or is a web address appears such as: http: // whatever .comExclude spaces.If not I cannot understand it, you could try: click hereHope it works,Regards,Gareth
You need to look at what's starting up when the system boots - clearly IE is set to start somewhere, as Gaz 25 suggests.Go Start - Run - Msconfig - Startup tab. This will show you what's set to start when the system starts. This should give you a good clue as to what's going on.
Gaz 25 There is no word RUN in the microsoft drop down menu. DieSse. Went into msconfig- startup tab and unticked ie explorer and it seams to have done the trick . thankyou both for your kind help. Zebby
