    Every time I restart my computer my home page changes from HTF to some search page. I have no idea how to fix this to keep my home page where I want it. Help.

    What home page is it changing your site to? Normally you could just open IE go to Tools, Internet Options, and put the home page you would like in at the top. Then click the apply button in the bottom right to set it. The problem is that you may have downloaded a program or have a cookie that is resetting your home page every time you restart your computer. It would be best if you deleted your coookies and internet history before you set your home page or restart your computer again.

    The page is istarthere.com. I tried all of the above suggestions and it still resets the home page when I restart the computer. If it is a program that I unknowingly downloaded how would I find it.

    Try Adaware to get rid of that nasty little prog that keeps changing your homepage.

    I had an older version of Ad Aware that didn't help. I just downloaded the latest version and that fixed it. Thanks for your help.
