Something keeps changing my homepage....

  1. I've tried Spybot Search and Destroy. Doesn't pick anything up. Everytime I log into my profile (Win XP) my homepage is set to www.05p.net, some porn site. WTF?? It happens on all profiles.

    If you don't want things to change your homepage, don't use IE.

    < another 1 for adware, check your registry & msconfig, and see what's starting on bootup.
