  • IE7 first page

    I installed IE7 on the wife's PC and when she brings it up it is direct to a page that is not her home page. How do I fix it?

    Here is the page
    http://www.bizimkizlar.com/
    it's not English and doesn't appear to be porn but maybe a dating site anyway it is not what she wishes to see.

    Drag the site you want as homepage from the address bar to the "home" icon.

      I had to go to the icom and change the target on the shortcut tab.

      Still don't know how it got changed.

        Check for spyware/adware... Sounds really fishy.

          Better yet- Try Firefox from mozilla. I switched about 3 months ago. Its got the tab thing going on way before MS did. It works really well and I can't remember more than 2 or 3 sites that didn't work--that's the only time I use IE now.

              I have FireFox on my PC. I just wanted to set my wife's up on IE7 just to compare them.

              With FireFox I haven't had a problem except for PC PitStop wouldn't work with it. But I still have IE6 loaded on my machine when things like this pop up.

              Thanks guy for your help.

                  Seriously, did you find the malware? I'd bet money that you're infected with something. IE isn't going to automatically set your homepage to some Greek pornsite by itself...

                    Didn't find any thing.

                    IE7 takes a little getting use to. I will probably put FireFox on for her.

                      Then how do you think that ended up as the homepage?

                        I have no idea. Wish I did have. I will post here if anything else pops up. She is still using IE7 with no problems except the interface.
