Thats what IE shows in the address bar when I load it. If I change it in settings to anything else it will change back after restarting XP. I looked at it in regedit and it looked normal to me. Changed all search and address bar settings to www.msn.com but to no avail. I recently removed ISearch. Maby I deleted something in the registry that I shouldn't have.

This is the only place I altered, besides uninstalled programs.

My suggestion is to delete ur internet cookies :) get ur internet on a diet as i would say? ok dont mind what i just said,lol. Then, try to update your current explorer using windows updates :). Then, change your homepage to www.msn.com, press apply. If none of these help you out, let me know, i have a few more solutions

I delete cookies on a regular basis. I tried said methods including regedit before I came here.

I found this site when I wanted to get rid of ISearch. Someone installed it on a normaly clean and fast system. I followed what you guys said to do and it was fully removed. Thanks for the program.

Wild Tangent should be uninstalled unless needed by games on your comp.

I understand the prefix part. But isn't O16 for Real Player? I think I'll uninstall it anyway, Real Player sucks.

All the 016's are safe to delete as they can be re-downloaded the next time you go to the relevant site. That particular one that caperjack caught is spyware from Netster.
