    I want to change my homepage and as much as I try to change it by going to tools>internet options, on IE Explorer 6.0, it won't change. I think it might have something to do with a virus or trojann. I tryed changing it in Win98 'Start > Run > regedit' but i'm not sure how to do it, can anybody help because it getting a bit annoying now if you know what I mean ... cheers ;)

    After changing your home page URL, did you remember to click on the Apply button?


    Testing: file:\\\c:... didn't work - how about this --

    ftp:///rds33... didn't work - how about this --

    All right. We have a winner. You must use a http:URL if a graphic is to be embedded in a message. Not necessary for attachments.

    thanks very much DoyceJ, some idiot sent me some link through my yahoo messenger, I won't put it on here for the obvious reasons what happened to me, but it was disturbing child pornography. Not very nice in more ways in one. But thanks very much. I followed old links and found you had teh same problems with the same website due to a pm, it is really annoying isn't it?

    Thanks for the warm welcome you gave me!
