    My home page WAS www.msn.com but it now is www.quest.msn.com and cannot be changed back using Internet Options. I've tried the following:
    1. Run CWShredder-didn't find anything.
    2. Restored to a date I thought was before this problem began-problem still there.

    I'm attaching my HIJack this log in hopes that someone can spot a problem.

    I'm using XPPro, SP3.

    Thanks in advance.

    Problem solved. About a week ago Qwest did some upgrades and changed the home page from www.msn.com to http://qwest.msn.com, it's basically the same page but looks different. I had suspected it might be a qwest or msn problem since it was happening on both of my PC's. There was supposed to be a notice sent to subscribers but I never received any notice via snail-mail or e-mail.
