I have a celeron 1800hz with 256k of ram running xp with service pack 2 installed. This is a shared computer with two other users (my two sons) as well as myself
I have AVG antivirus, zone alarm for firewall and regularly run ad-aware for spy ware etc. All these are up to date and installed and running. I am always on top of this as my sons do go to sites that may contain virus's or similar
There are two problems
a) Every time I select Internet explorer off the menu, the home web page is a search web page I havent set. I change home page in internet options to my prefered home page and also edit the registry to remove any mention of this feral search bar page but the next time I boot up and then select internet explorer it has reverted back to the search bar page.
b) The other problem is that if you select a link to a page takes a bit longer to open, the page being loaded is redirected to a porn site page and once that happens, even if you go back out of that site, every time u select the link to your intended site this porn site comes up instead.
I've run all the anti-virus and adware programs without finding any trojans, virus's or explanations for this problem.
Can anyone have any suggestions. Thanks also for your help
