Every time I open up IE7 it takes me to htxp://www.freewebs.com/abuseFrozen.htm. I can reset the page to another page or blank and that works fine until I reboot and then back to the freewebs page. I have run various programmes to remove spyware and adware etc and have up to date AV software. I contacted freewebs and they gave me advice on removing registry entries. There is a freeweb registry entry for HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\start page and when I remove this IE7 opens up with blank pages until I reboot and then it comes back again. Apart from the nuisance value it does not appear to cause any operating problems but it bugs me that something somewher can't be found?
