    Hope some one can help!

    My home button on the toolbar has been hijacked. I have Win 2000, IE6.0.
    Everytime I start IE it goes to our intranet site as it should and is set up in the internet options...BUT as soon as I use the "home" button on the toolbar it goes to the following site instead: www.intranetjournal.com

    We've tried looking everywhere even in the registry, but nothing has worked so far.

    What else can I or must I check to solve this problem?

    Hi Kerst

    Please Download and install SpyBot,

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/spybot14.exe

    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything
