    Default Internet Explorer home page woe

    I have this problem of this unwanted webpage findyourwebsites.com being set as the default IE home page when I have actually set it to www.clubsnap.org.

    In other words, even after I have set clubsnap.org as IE's home page, at times, the unwanted home page would appear instead. This happened even when Pop-up Stopper is enabled.

    Are there ways to rectify this situation?

    TIA.

    Bring up your task manager and sort by CPU. Click homepage button in IE and see which process goes to the top. After that you can zap away the program by deleting it from your harddisk and also removing it from the registry. I suggest you use registry crawler to do that.
