Are you running antipyware if so what programs?

Some antispyware programs lock the homepage to prevent Hijackers.

aol explore = startup page aol.co.uk then click home goes to pcadvisor

aol software = welcome page aol.co.uk then click home its pc advisor

ie = open page pcadvisor home pcadvisor

hope someone can decipher my drivel regards akanic

Lately Aol have changed. The welcome page is no longer the home page for Aol. If you delete the welcome page in Aol and click the home page on the upper tool bar then you will get IE's home page. Mine is currently MSN.

Sadly I think that AOL is going the way of all other ISP's. Nevermind the greenhorns that first connect to the internet--let them fend for themselves. Seems to me that this ISP is being primed for a takeover.

I might be wrong;but I might be right.
