    Hello to all,

    I am still having trouble accessing the only way to delete a malicious program that is setting my IE6 home page to a Russian home page, That I don't bloody want there. I have gone through all the standard procedures that you have to do through IE6, appy button and all.
    I managed to find on the net on how to delete hidden files and cookies (IE6 index.dat files) and thought this would fix the problem, but allas, NO. The horror home page still rears its ugly head. So I am hoping that I will be able to do something trhough MS-Dos.

    Please help
    The frustration, is sending me bald aaaarrrrgggghhh
    Thanks

    There are several DOS-based web browsers available, such as Arachne

    But before resorting to DOS web browsing you should try some of the other Windows based browsers, like Mozilla or Opera

    Either of these should work well for you. I'm not sure what sort of malicious program you're referring to but both Mozilla and Opera are far more security conscious than IE.

    RyosukeFC may I ask if your a Initial D fan?
    second the program could be wired in your registry if you can track it down and removing it without having to reformat.

    KingXII Whatever gave you that idea?

    Initial D rocks. I chose this nick because I drive an FC, though not as cool or as fast as Ryosuke's ride.

    it's supposed to be a p2p network but if you want to just leech then move everything out of your kazaa share directory

    i don't think you can save files in a directory and not share it.
