Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Microsoft Internet Explorer

\015 Every time I log on my computer instead of getting my home page I get the Microsoft Internet Explorer page which requests you to upgrade to Explorer 7 or 8 . www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx\015\012I already have 7 and do not want 8 at this time. How can I eliminate this page. Microsoft has been no help at all!\015

Answers :

Well I'd consider this kind of a browser hijack.

You can download it here:

Hijackthis

I'm not sure how the new version is but the concept should be the same. Look for the www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx

entry and then have the program remove it.

You usually have to restart the browser and / or the computer for the settings to take effect.

Let me know if you have any trouble.

Best of luck!
