Hi there, I'm a virgin Threader so go easy on me. My IE explorer homepage keeps defaulting to a page I don't want and it has added links in my Favorites Menu. I also think I have loads of things on my computer that I don't think should be there. As far as I know I only have the free ZoneAlarm Firewall download as security. Looking at some of the questions I've read this doesn't seem enough. Please could you help me 'clean up' my computer as I'm ok working it but don't understand what goes on behind the scenes. So the idiots guide would be helpful.
Thanks
