I see many other questions about this topic, and while the URL used is different in each case, the effect is the same. In my case, the URL used is "http://www.searchqu.com/406" . When I start up Firefox this is the start-up page used. The home page button shows this and when I go into Tools/Options, the home page is this. If I put in a different address for the home page, if I set the current tab to the address I want and choose "Use Current Page" or if I choose "Use Bookmark" and select the address I want, when I stop Firefox and then restart it, the home page is back to http://www.searchqu.com/406. I can go to "Most Visited" and choose the address I want but there is a problem I can't solve. Any ideas?

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post them in your reply
