Angry what in tarnation!!!

Alright guys,

I am having serious issues with my homepage. I saw that other post concerning this kinda same problem, but mine seems different perhaps? Permission to flame if I'm not using my brain hehe.

My homepage is somehow ALWAYS http://homepage.com even when I go to tools, internet options, and change it!!! My computer has never done this before Is there anything I can do? We have Norton antivirus scan. Also not sure if this is related, but we have a zillion popups arrgggggghhhh. Did I get a virus, hijacked, what in the world?

Any advice?

Thank ya!!!

Sounds like you did get hijacked! Try downloaded adaware or something.

Thanks for the advice, but it didn't work I did download Ad-aware and ran the scan thing and followed the directions and deleted all the files it came up with and it's still a problem. Nothing has changed, is there anything else I can do???
