Ok, so I know a little bit about computers, but I wouldn't say I'm an expert or anything, so detailed instructions would be helpful when responding to this, and thanks for the help. Here's what's going on. When I open firefox my home page defaults to 28yoog.com. I googled the problem and removed a program I found in the change or delete programs on my hard drive. After I removed the program the home page was able to be set back to google. I logged off and when I got back on 28yoog was back. Also, I'm getting slower than normal responses when starting up and opening up a web browser. I go into %temp% from the run command and clean my catche about once a week, and I've gone into msconfig and shut down everything I don't need, but it's taking a good 20 seconds for an internet page to load from the time I click the firefox icon. Once on firefox I can navigate pretty quickly, it's just when I first start it up. There are other things that happen like programs not working properly etc. But the slow startup and 28yoog are the biggest problems I'm having. I'm working with Windows XP and I use Zone Alarm firewall protection and AVG antivirus (both need to be updated). Any help would be great. A co-worker recommended your site and told me a scan of my computer could be run that much more thorough than a ZoneAlarm virus scan and you could tell me what to remove. Again, thanks for your help, it's much appreciated.
