Hi all, brother-in-law gone over to NTL from Wanadoo/Orange. How do you get rid of the Orange homepage coming up when you start IE6?

I've been through the registery and deleted everything with Wanadoo/Orange in it but still the Orange homepage comes up.

Cannot change via tools/options in IE6

Thankyou,

Mike

What happens when you try to change it in Tools > Internet Options?

Open IE bring up the page you want as HOME. Select "Tools" from the IE menus bar, select internet options from the dropdown menu, select the general tab and select "use current" in the home page box at the top.

Hi Bof,hope your well mate.

Ok,if your brother-in-law has Spybot Search and destroy on his system..try this.

Open Spybot/Select Mode and Advanced/Bottom left of the page select Tools/Select Browser Pages/Double click the current home page you wish to change,you will be given a box to retype the new address in.

Hope it helps.

Hi all,

VoG™, if I delete 'click here' and put in 'click here' , click apply and ok the page goes back to orange.co.uk homepage

greenlamp, tried this, it goes back to the orange website page.

skidzy, I'm fine mate how are you?

I've tried what you suggested and was given the option to change the website, this I did. I then got a message saying a value had been altered...save old or new one, I selected new one, but the Orange homepage come up again when I opened IE.

I'm just waiting for SUPERantivirus to finish scanning then I'll reboot the pc.

Thankyou everyone for your help its realy appreciated,

Mike

yes I did johnnyrocker, but I'll try again just incase

nope didnt work, I did'nt get the notification of a change taking place either.

I do seem to recall that altering a homepage was something to do with resetting/deleting a value/ name in the registery, but I was unable to find the posting.

I've deleted all the references to Orange and Wanadoo I could find using regedit and find.

Normally you have the wanted home page on screen before selecting Current Page as your home page, otherwise it reverts to the original choice.

Hi Stuartli, do you mean when you open IE or are you refering to Spybot S & d ?
