    I've always had I.E. as my browser and when I went into it just now, Lycos was the search page. Huh? I tried to reset the I.E. to the default browser and it says it did but Lycos is still the browser. I went to search>files and folders>internet prefs. and tried to change it there but there is no IE in there. I tried to d/l it again and it says a newer version is already in here. What happened? I know this is a simple task cause I've done it before, but now I'm stumped. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

    BTW-I have XP home.

    Not sure if I fully understand. IE opens correctly yes? But you are having trouble with your Home/Search page being changed, yes?
    Right click IE icon/properties change home page there.
