Within the last week, whenever I open my browser it goes to http://home.verizon.yahoo.com
, and it takes quite a long time to load. No matter how many times or where I try to change my home page in Tools/Internet Options, when I reopen the browser it goes back to the http://home.verizon.yahoo.com
. The address that shows briefly in the status bar before it opens the Verizon Yahoo page is very long, but starts this way: "http://wapp.verizon.net/bookmarks/bmredir.asp?region=all&bw=dsl&cd=7.0yahoo."
If I click the Home icon on the toolbar, it goes to the home page that I set in Tools/Internet Options. I use Verizon for Internet access, but I can't find any information in the member center about what might be happening. Is this something Verizon is doing, or do I have some kind of virus?
Thanks for your help!
