I am having a problem with my home page when I log on. It used to be ntlworld.com, however for some reason a new home page has taken over.

When I make my original home page the default again when I log on next time this other page has taken over again.

It must have acessed into the system register to prevent my default changes being effective, any ideas as how to get rid of it and restoring my original default settings please

First, what caused the home page to change? It could of been Comet Cursor, Gator or any other programs which could be spyware. Sometimes websites change the internet explorer homepage because you've accessed them.

Ntl could of changed the home page for you.

You said that you changed the home page to the default. The default could of "CHANGED!".

To help solve the problem ,beast, you need to post a response to this subject about what caused the homepage to change.

my original homepage was ntlworld.com then click here took over as my homepage.

I tried resetting the homepage to ntlworld.com using tools/internet options having ntlworld.com as the homepage and requested it to have the ntlworld.com homepage as the default. But whenever I log on the internet click here become the homepage, which would indicate it operating deeper within the system to overthrow my ntlworld.com requested homepage. Iwant to know can I throw out the click here as a homepage I don't want it anyway

I did away with home pages a long while ago and simply use "allabout". If I want access to any server home pages I put the in Favourites.This works very well and speeds up processes. Best of luck
