i use xp pro with internet explorer 6 with a broadband connection. all of a sudden my home page turned to alpha-search.com and i cant change it. every time i delete it and put a different home page in it just comes back every time i start the internet. then about a week later it got worse, now it logs on to porn sites without me clicking on explorer. even when im playing games it just comes up. it also puts bizzare sites in my favorites, i delete them but they come back every time i go on the internet. please, please help, its driving me nuts. they even came up whilst i was typing this out

I have a word document with all the recommendations listed which I copy and paste into the thread:-)

P.S. I claim no credit for the suggestions though. I was either already running them or I've downloaded them based on other forum members recommendations and tried them out myself.

I use them myself.
