I have a brand new laptop with XP pro and IE 6. I'm sure this is not a malware problem but it is just as annoying. Everytime I restart this computer, my home page changes from what I set it to back to MSN. I'm sure this is a Micrsoft feature of this version of IE 6. Does anyone know how to disable this "feature"?

I have never heard of that feature with MSN, it sounds to me like you have some kind of anti-browser hijack installed that thinks it is doing you a favour by "restoring" your preferred homepage.

If you haven't got anything, I would recommend using the Microsoft Anti-Spyware program which can be downloaded from http://download.micr...wareInstall.exe

In the "Advanced Tools" in this you can set things like your homepage and this program will ensure that nothing can change them without your consent.

I didn't see anything that looked too strange but I'm still a bit new to going through the logs. Would you mind taking a look at mine... Thanks.

I found a checkbox in the wireless manager that is changing the IE homepage so I found that problem. All of a sudden this brand new laptop is slow and sluggish on the Internet. My poker site doesn't work correctly and when I turn on the laptop my other computer which works fine otherwise loses its signal to the wireless network. Not sure what is going on now.

I think I have this all figured out now. This might be good information to put someplace. My problem was power related. With the system plugged in everything was good. On battery the wireless card was set to maximum battery life and minimum performance. Changing that made the difference. Play and learn! :D
