    My IE address line use to automatically search google, now it is searching Xupiter, and it's worthless. How did it get changed and how do I get rid of it, and then is there a way to protect it from being changed again.

    It has happened before and I was able to go to search and customize, and google was one of my choices, but now I can't customize it at all. I looked at Make Google Your Default Search Engine by editing your pref file through notepad, but I not that intelligent (-:

    Thanks for your help!

    See this link :

    http://www.allentech.net/parasite/Xupiter.html

    If not enough info then just use :

    http://www.google.com

    To prevent anything installing without your premission do this :

    In Internet Explorer go Tools > Options > Advanced then under the section Browsing you need to find the two boxes marked Install on Demand. If they are ticked - untick them. Then click OK.

    OK ?? :)

    If more help needed then post back here.
