Someone changed my homepage! Arghhh!

3 posts in this topic

Hi!

Be patient with me I'm not too hot when it comes to all this stuff!

I had to format my hard drive cus I downloaded something that took over my PC...

Anyway... I had to download the latest Version of Internet Explorer.

When I did that my homepage was changed to this...

http://runonce.msn.com/runonce3.aspx

How do I stop it? I have tried changing the homepage details in the Internet Options buth this damned page just won't go away!

When I fill in the stuff on the above page I just get this message... "Settings were not able to be saved successfully."

Any help would be appreciated.

(Why they have to do this I can't quite work out... but it's soooo annoying!

Just let it do it... you'll find that IE7 insists that you "set it up" on first use. Should be ok afterward; that's why you see "runonce" stuff - only runs once. No biggie. ;)

Scratch that... just noticed "settings not saved" comment. Try uninstalling IE7 then reinstall it to see if its "fixed"...

Unless you are referring to "Internet Options" (you are?) then you must do the first thing I mentioned, or the changes will be ignored...

P.S. Best to be updated to latest Service Pack FIRST as you must uninstall updates in reverse order to successfully uninstall IE7 (as the last uninstalled item).

Run Registry Editor (type regedit in Run dialog box and press return key)

Navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

Now create two DWORD value titled RunOnceComplete and RunOnceHasShown and set their value to 1

Now run your IE....It'll direct to your home page.
