I am not happy that this site has Hijacked my homepage settings. I have tried to reset via internet options but it just defaults back.
I have run ad aware Spybot cw shredder but its not doing the trick.
Can somebody help with A STEP BY STEP guide. Cheers

Try this site for some advice on how to regain your homepage. I'm sure there is something in windows security, or Spybot that will prevent this happening again, but I can't remember exactly where! click here

Runescape is not a virus / malware its an online role playing game, so need to worry.

You may have a antispy program that is sopping the change to the homepage. (SpywareBlaster is an example).

I think Spybot also prevents homepage changes (don,t currently have it on my system)so check the settings in that program.

In my household Runescape is played every day for around 18 months and has never caused a problem.

Is it possible you ticked a box to make Runescape your default homepage ? Alternatively the suggestions above will sort this problem im sure.
