My Internet Explorer Title Changed by itself when I was looking at "stuff" on the web. I went into the registry and changed it, though. What happened, and should I be concerned?

Sounds like a hijack of some sort. What kind of protection are you running?

Here's some help.

I have Norton and I have Adware. I'm going to do some scans.

If you don't have a firewall I would install one. This would intercept any outbound malware and give you an idea of what may have infected your computer. Here are several recommended here.

Firewalls (Run only one.)
Zone Alarm Free for Personal Use
SyGate Presonal Firewall 5.6 (I personally use)
OutPost Firewall Free
Kerio Free Personal Firewall
