mrtruckster,

Your post will split to new topic since it was posted with the wrong topic.

Anyway, you may have reoccuring spyware that changes your default search or default home page to their's. This is also known as Browser Hijack. Download free anti-spy wares like Spybot Search & Destroy and try cleaning your computer.

Also, make sure your computer is infection free with anti-virus.

If you are still having the same issue and you have Windows XP system, try following this example:

Sounds like you got your browser hijack and the home page is usually the most common hijacks and like buff mention scan your computer for spyware and malware and it will remove that problem. I recommend trying spybot and SuperAntiSpyware to help remove those problems from your computer.

I think you have a Trojan called FRUCTA...... Get some kind of special program that gets rid of those types of things such as SilverSword..... The normal everyday anti-virus such as McAfee doesn't detect those things.....sadly....I was amazed to find this happen to me too......

It is most likely a virus, so scan your computer. However, if you have installed a new browser toolbar or something simialar, they often do that. If you have, uninstall it, then scan your computer for viruses.
