    Do you have virus protection? If not, you should. Get some, update it and scan.

    Same goes if you do, update it and scan.

    You probably wanna look into a firewall. This thread has lots of suggestions for firewalls:

    ZoneAlarm is a great free firewall too.
    You can DL it at;
    http://download.com.com/3000-2092-10...age&tag=button

    I would suggest you also get Spybot Search & Destroy and scan your system for unwanted nasties;
    http://spybot.eon.net.au/

    To prevent your homepage from being hijacked use Start Page Guard;
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads/spg/

    All the software linked above is free, updated regularly, and deals specifically with a problem you mentioned.

    Best of luck to you!

    Note, ZoneAlarm is a great product, that said - before you DL it please read this page;
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/articles/zonelabs/
    shame, but if you can deal with that bit of BS it will protect you rather nicely.
    Fortunately, I think I have the version prior to the option to turn off updates being disabled. Version 2.6 is the newest available version at http://www.oldversion.com/
    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    uhm.. maybe you went to a website that asked u if u wanted to change your default home page and u accidentally pressed yes?

    now if it changes all the time even if u change it back, then yeah, u might have a virus but other than that, you might also check your internet security settings if its on very low or something.

    besides, i think the one you want is an anti-virus not a firewall.. i dont think a hacker get into your system just to change your home page.

    :) haha.. i kow i dont[firewall or antivirus], and i am on cable net.. maybe when i know for sure i got a virus then ill install one.

    you just gotta be careful not to open suspicious programs and practice safe internet surfing..

    besides, if a hacker does get into my system, he can have anything he wants.. im sharing my files freely anyway.. if he wants to format my HD[which is stupid as its pointless], i got all i want backed up.
