So, I think my brother is playing a trick on me. He came over the other day and got on my computer for a minute. Now I dont know how to get rid of his joke.

I recently made a Myspace.com and have been checking it every other day. Now when I type in www.myspace.com it redirects me to an adult site.( I know, he thinks hes a funny sucker)

Can anyone please tell me where I can change this setting. I have loojked but have had no luck.

Thanks in advance

Have you checked your HOSTS file?

FYI, if your brother visited the wrong kind of site, it could have downloaded and installed a hijacker virus faster than he could have opened, edited and saved your hosts file.
