homepage is stuck on radom porn website
my home homepage is stuck on this stupid battibatti porn page and i cant seem to be able to get rid of it. i have deleted cookies and everything in my comp dealing with that website and went to options and homepage but every lil while or after a reboot the home page reverts back to that stupid website. i dont know how the website became my homepage to begin with - the site is wack - my cousin was using my comp (i can find a lot better porn then that). anyone know of how to get rid of this ****?

You're very welcome
Now to stop it happening again, in IE6 go to the Tools>Internet Options>Security tab and click on the Custom Content button. Make sure that "Download unsigned activeX controls" is set to Disable, and "Download signed ActiveX controls" is set to Prompt or Disable.
