    Hello. I have Windows xp Intel. Since a family member and friend used my computer, my home page when clicking on internet explorer was changed. I have tried to change it back, but unable too.

    It maybe coincidental this happened "after" someone used my computer.

    However, now since when i click on tools and internet options, the later does NOT respond. Also another route I use to take was via "start" control panel, internet connections, and all those links work as nomal. But the last link via this route to "change internet connections" etc does NOT work either. I hope I have exlained good enough my problem and NOT said to much. Would appreciate help with this problem.

    Best wishes. Ifor Love

    It sounds like you POSSIBLY have some sort of malware in your machine. I suggest as a first step to click on the red triangle in the upper right hand corner or the dialogue box and ask a moderator to move your thread to the malware section.

    One of the malware guru's will ask you to download and run HighJack This and then post a log. Let one of the malware guru's examine the log and see if you have malware problems.
