Help with Browser Problem

    I have a problem with my startup page.
    I go into Tools -> Internet Options and set it
    When I close and re-open it, it works and goes to that page.
    But if I restart my computer, my startup page changes to
    some search engine.

    It started happening a day or two ago when I was surfing.
    I hate it when some pages spam multiple pop-ups, try to
    install gator on your computer and add bookmarks for you.
    I always hit no when any page wants to install anything.

    1. How do I remove whatever program or process that keeps
    changing my startup page every time I restart windows?

    Thanks for any replies on how to fix this!

    I was having the same problem....quite annoying!

    Once I installed a type of application known as "Spyware", it detected all of the unwanted apps and then gave me the opportunity to delete each one. I used a free version of Spybot (but there are plenty of others to consider) and installed it about 3 months ago. Haven't had a problem since.

    If interested, we had a similiar discussion on eSignal Central in July.

    Hope that helps.

    I just downloaded and installed the Spybot and it found some things but I'm still having problems with my startup page.

    Everytime I restart my computer, it sets to

    I've went into regedit, did a search and deleted like 8 different
    references to this web page. So my registry is completely clean.
    I reboot and restart IE and it's back again.

    That is totally wrong for any webpage to change your booksmarks and change your startup page. I have no idea how it keeps changing it back after I removed it from my registry.

    I'm almost considering removing IE and reinstalling IE.
    Any other ideas?
