Urgent internet question

A work collegue (not me, honest) was surfing around the net and he was looking at a porn sight and somehow this comes up as his home page now, how do we fix - fast! Running Internet Explorer 5 if it makes a difference.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Go to Settings, Control Panel, Internet Options, and you type in your home page there.

You can change homepage to anything you want....

Go to settings, then control panel, then to internet options,

When internet properties box comes up the first line is Home Page.

You can change this to whatever you want eg. www.yahoo.com

The site has more than likely put in a folder in your program files folder.... You will have to find this file and delete this BUT make sure you know what file your deleting........getting rid of a wrong one can be really bad


Hope this helps

OR, for people that don't like menus

Browse to your prefered Homepage,
Drag and drop the address icon (left of the http://whatever.com text) on top of the Home button.

Too easy!

Good idea, but that doesn't work for me.

Oh well, it does on my MSIE5.

As soon as you drag & drop a window pops open asking if you want to change your homepage to http://whatever.com
