    when I turn on internet this persistent homepage comes up i've tried to change it but it always comes back i think it's some at to do with lop.com but i'm unsure i've tried norton, spy sweeper, spybot, ad-aware SE but these haven't got rid of it any suggestions

    Spyware or Adware mate

    goto http://www.bulletproofsoft.com

    and download BPS Spyware Adware Remover - it will get rid of the bar and the start page, then when its removed everything you can change it to whatever you want and it will stay that way :D

    First of all you should get:-

    Spybot S&D at:- http://www.safer-networking.org/?page=download

    Ad-aware SE at:- http://www.lavasoft.de/

    Aluria Spyware Eliminator at:- http://www.aluriasoftware.com/homeproducts/spyware/

    SpySweeper at:- http://www.webroot.com/land/land-spysweeper6_6.php?rc=325

    Those 4 programs should take care of any trojans/virus/bots/malware -- HOWEVER should you be infected by one that is very NEW -- You should visit the specialists at :- http://forums.spywareinfo.com/index.php?showtopic=227

    Where AFTER you have used the above programs and had no results -- you will be helped. Follow the rules on that site and be patient , me and others there are sometimes overloaded.

    check your add/remove in control panel & change your homepage in internet options if you hadn't alraedy. also check your msconfig to see if it is there
