You could always try a different browser. Free ones are available on this website to download altho its much quicker from a free PC magazine disc if you are on dial up.

i am currently using msoftIE6.0

Has your home page or default search page been changed but not by you? From those symptoms I think you almost certainly have the CWS Trojan hijacker which appears to be doing the rounds and is a recent variant of an earlier Trojan
- download CWS shreddeer from click here> You will need Winzip to unzip the file
and un the program which should cure it.

You will need Winzip to unzip the file and run (!) the program which should cure it.

Or click here

It may also be a trick virus. but as Patr100 says the CWS Trojan is on the rounds.

Thanks for your email and glad it's sorted but it's best to keep questions in the public forum. You say you run Norton and it missed it. I think this recent variant may be able to bypass some AV programs but it always important to make sure that you have your Defintions up to date.

This trojan is detected by Computer Associates antivirus products under the following names:
Win32.Startpage.C
JS.CSSPopup.B,
JScript/IEstart.Trojan,
Win32/IEstart.Trojan
