    I have a little bit of annoyance / problem here...
    It's this website called skeech.com that keeps replacing my home page and adding other extra websites on my favorites list. Is there anyway to prevent this website (and others alike) from invading my computer and messing with my settings? [​IMG]
    And no, I don't go this website, it shows up as a pop-up ad (like that ANNOYING X-10 ad).
    Thanx for your help,
    -RL-

    Put this site's URL into your browser's Restricted Sites zone (I'm assuming you're using Internet Explorer). This will prevent Javascript, Java applets and ActiveX from running on the page.

    If you're running a personal firewall or a pop-up ad blocker, you can block the site from there as well, so it doesn't come up at all.
