Ok Folks, I've tried everything. I hope I can describe what's happening accurately enough. Here goes.
When I go to Internet Explorer and my home page (COX) comes up, other, unwanted, pages pop up too. I have set my phishing and popup blockers on max to no avail. I also noticed that when I start up my computer that the Privacy tab in Internet Options is being turned off. I ran virus scan (McAfee) and it doesn't help. I have Vista 32 an it has all available updates. It looks like something has tken over my browser. I called COX internet people but they can't help. So, any help here is much appreciated.TIA
