i have just moved from dial up to b/band and have networked 2 comps. the first one obiously has the hub but the wireless one that im using the bt software has been installed but since then i cannot set a permenant home page.as soon as i click page off and open a new 1 i get about blank home page which comes with loads of annoying pop ups that my pop up stopper cannot stop..it may be something simple but why can my 2nd pc not store a home page and keep reverting back to "about blank"? the main pc does it np.. ty for any help

Sounds like you second PC has had the home page Hijacked

Try this first CW Shredder click here

and report back Hijacks can be very difficult to remove.

after you have run shredder and it gets rid of the hijacker

reset the homepage by tools -internet options-homepage type in the address of the site.

Try going into safe mode and running Coolweb Shredder again, clicking 'fix' as opposed to scan only. Make sure you have the most up to date version v1.56.3 You can update it by clicking on the update button
