My apologies if this is not the correct forum.

Whenever I open IE, it redirects from my home page to "http://www.microsoft.com/windows/downloads/ie/getitnow.mspx". I am running IE7 Version 7.0.5730.11 and Windows XP Home Edition SP3.

I have checked in the advanced internet tool options and the check for updates is not checked. I have run both Adware 2008 and the latest Mcafee Virus Scan and found no problems.

Any ideas to fix this would be appreciated.

Have you tried simply resetting your home page?

Reset Home page seems to have worked. Don't know why since it was still listed as correct. Hope this works for the long haul.

Thanks for the suggetsion
