    I just downloaded all critical updates along with IE7 from the microsoft update site & rebooted the pc.
    Now when i try to use Internet Explorer it takes me from my hope page: Google, to this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=74005 & then to this one that says something like runoncemsn & loads of numbers..

    Is this a Hijacker & whats the best free app to get rid of it>

    Thanks for any help i recieve.

    Sorry, just noticed this is in the wrong section..

    OK thanks.

    I used to use Firefox,
    but got a lot of problems but i think ill try it again..

    Anything has to be better than IE!!!
    Is there a way to uninstall Internet Explorer?
    Or do some programs need it?

    Thanks again
