    My father in law keeps getting bumped out of one site when using internet explorer. He goes to the page www.royalbank.com and gets bumped to the everton football club home page. He had the everton page as his home page but we removed it and it still happened. This only happens when he types in the www.royalbank.com site address, no other address does this. The oddest thing is if he types in http://www.royalbank.com he goes to that site.
    Anybody seen this before.

    Here's a few basic/common things to try.

    Update to the latest Internet Explorer - IE 6 with SP1 and a few patches on top of that - Easiest way is to go to Windows Update from IE Tools - Windows Update. Get all the Critical Updates and any applicable Program Updates.

    You should also Download Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy. As well as doing a full virus scan.

    You get the first two programs from www.download.com - just do a search. Once they are downloaded, you MUST do an update within each program - you'll see the Update feature.

    You can do a free online scan at www.trend.com - this will ensure you are using the latest virus patterns to look for all viruses.
