I got an e-mail with a "url" from a "friend" well I went to it , and it set it self as my homepage(start page) without permission (http://sm.sexhound.com), it also diabled the 3 buttons,and can't change it in Internet Properties. I fixed that in regedit.exe,, I can change the homepage in Internet Properties now, but,,, When I set it to lets say http://www.msn.com its there until I restart my PC then http://sm.sexhound.com is my homepage again,, I tried deleting cookies ,history, I ran find files and folders for sexhound but found nothing .... HOW CAN I GET RID OF THIS PROBLEM???? AND GET EVERYTHING FROM THAT SITE OFF MY PC. My next move is to delete IE6.0 and redownload it again. PLEASE TELL ME THERES ANOTHER WAY. I'm guessing its changed a value somewhere making sexhound become my homepage on start up all the time.:mad:

I am sorry...that page was working ealier today. However you're correct , it isn't now. Not unless you download it.

It was used in another thread about the same time I gave it to you & thats how i knew it was there.

There are a few threads where people's homepage is changed. <a href=http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?threadid=60065> This</a> is one to look at.

Let us know what happens. If that doesn't solve it, there are others you can take a look at.

BTW, if your running W98 or Windows ME and it's been 5 days or less since this happened, your best bet may be to just restore a registry backup that Windows keeps for you automatically and go from there.

If your running W98, a registry restore is done this way

Click on Start>Restart in MSDos Mode and then at a DOS prompt,

scanreg /restore

If your running Windows ME, boot to your Windows ME boot diskette, take the option for "Minimal Boot' and then at an a:\> prompt key in the same scanreg /restore command.
