Unable to get rid of fish.co.uk

  Nightmanager 18:38 10 Nov 2003

I have been given my daughters PC and every time I try to connect to hotmail.com up pops fish.co.uk's home page. I have deleted every reference to fish that I can find, but still it pops up when I try hotmail. My daughter had a hotmail address on fish.co.uk before she let me have the PC, I am now with Tiscali. How do I get rid of fish totally.

Go to tools, internet options then change the home page address.

The only home page address is tiscali, but still fish.co.uk opens if I try to go to hotmail.com

It sounds like you're suffering from a similar problem to the one I had. You need a piece of software called "CWShredder" which I've just used and it fixed my problem.

Sorry I'm not sure how to link you to my thread, but search for "fastwebfinder" and you should find my original posting.

Good luck.
