Nearly every day my Home search page keeps changing. I Never had this problem when I used Google but I now want to use Bing, but nearly every day it changes from Bing to some other site I have not come accross before. Is there a way to lock my search enging to Bing so others can't change it?

Name of the site it changes to and what browser do you use.

Could be a bug that redirects. The last time I had this, I had to use Kaspersky's TDSS killer to get rid of it - malwarebytes didn't find it.

The site that takes over is HTTP:// www.iespell.com The one I am using is bing, at the moment. I have changed from Google after some of the things that people say that Google are up to these days.

Whatever browser you use find the 'search manager' usually under tools or settings, and in the list disable or delete conduit after making another search engine the default.

Then you need to change your home page to your preference.

Check programs and features for Conduit and uninstall.
