    hey guys,

    i'm having a problem with a stupid program continuously changing my homepage to its own. the site is "Isearch" i dont know if you guys have experienced this annoyance yet. Well anyways no matter how much i do adware/spyware scans it wont stop changing it. Is there any way to make windows not automatically change the homepage? What do you guys reccomend? Thanks, Mike

    Google is a wonderful tool. This is listed as the first match but you can go down the list yourself if you like.

    Thsoe stupid search things are really annoying but just uninstall the tooolbar from the add/remove programs list,m then downlaod the google toolbar whihc is alot better and doesnt do that. Or you could use a difefrent bnrowser liek Opera at http://oldversion.com/program.php?n=opera. And downlaod Opera 7.11. Opera is one of my favorite and has many features, but the newest one has some problems thats why i sent you to oldversion.com. Another good browser is mozilla but I think Opera is alot better.
