    Hi there,

    When i connect to the internet via broadband, my windows explorer opens but is always directed to my ISP's home page even though my homepage is set via Internet Options to google. I'm sure i change it via the regedit, but need a little guidance, can anyone help?

    Cheers

    You need to uninstall the junk software that your ISP thoughtfully provided. You don't need any of it.

    Spy Sweeper, Spybot and others have an option to lock the start page. In Spybot go into Tools > IE Tweaks and see if you have 'Lock IE start page setting from user changes' checked.

    Go to Mode and pick Advanced mode. What other Spyware utilities do you have?
