Help please my Home page seems to get taken over every time I open Internet Explorer.
Instead of opening to my default page it opens to a page www.safetydefender.com that are obviously trying to get me to buy thier programs.
How do I stop this please.
I am a novice user, so simple english would be appreciated/

Hello Pete.

Microsoft released a tool last year called the Malicious Software Removal Tool.

It has a chance of removing any malicious code running that is hijacking your browser. Here's the link:

Good luck :thumbsup:
