    about every third time I log onto the internet my home page doesn't come up instead I get http://hp-desktop.aol.com/ instead.. if I click on home button I get my home page. I would like to stop this but don't know how, I've done a search for anything aol and deleted it, there is always a cookie in my temp files after this page comes up and I delete it but then in a day or two it comes up again. can anyone help solve this, I have run adaware and spybot and I am using avast

    if you are on aol as your isp you will get this come up,minimise then use internet explorer or firefox which ever u use.assume u on aol so no way of preventing the start up page as this one however if u not on aol then try internet options to alter your home page.

    I'm not on aol, I use a local isp. the first thing I did when I got this computer was get rid of anything that had to do with aol.

    I found out that the only time this problem happened is when I used the internet button on my hp keyboard so when I investigated the settings in the control panel the keyboard shortcut was set to connect to the aol site, so I just changed it to my normal home page and now everything is back to normal
