My friends computer has been screwing up

    He wanted me to post over here for him. His homepage on his computer keeps resetting itself when he turns off his computer to "c:\windows\hp.htm". How can he get it to stop resetting itself and stay on what he had it set for? He said he ran Spybot and Adaware on it and still turned up nothing. Any ideas?

    Mine kept resetting to a search site, ran Norton's, cleaned it and now it's fine.

    Try scanning for a virus.

    SystemWorks 200x + Spybot 1.2 + decent firewall = peace of mind

    spybot >,<,=, or different from ad-aware?

    spybot > ad-aware. it allows you to Immunize your computer against certain spyware types -- in other words, you can't catch the same cold twice.

    He said he ran spybot and it's still doing it. He said he also ran a virus scan. Any other options?
