Home Page Problem, Help Please

My homepage is set to www.yahoo.co.uk and up to past couple of days it has not been a problem. However, for some reason when I now access my browser, Firefox, I get the following homepage, http://search.conduit.com/?ctid=CT2645238&SearchSource=13.

I have looked in settings, via control panel, and it does show Yahoo as the home page.

I can reset the homepage when browser is open, but as soon as I close the browser it reverts back to the conduit homepage.

I haven't installed anything recently so I know I haven't missed a tick box. Any ideas how I can get rid of this?

Thanks

Hey try this: Open your Firefox browser and type “about:config” in address bar then you should see a list of Preference names and their valuse. Next type search in the filter box and check all strings contents as "Conduit" followed by a right click then reset

Thanks guys.

Seems to have fixed it. How does it manage to hijack though if you don't install something?
