Gay internet browser...
    #1974821 - 10/03/03 01:58 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

My computer is pissing me off like fuckin crazy. Every few times I open my Internet Explore web browser which my home page is supposed to be set to blank, I get this gay site called passthison.com something like that and pop us and shit start to appear. It just takes control of my computer and wont let me close the window with out ctrl + Alt + Del. If anybody knows how to make my home page stay permanetly blank...you will be my new god!

1. You have spyware/adware installed on your computer. In order to remedy this problem, you must download Spybot or Adaware to remove these invaders. I will post links in a few minutes.

2. Consider a real browser. Internet Explorer is terrible. I highly recommend Mozilla  Firebird as a substitute :heart: I made it my default and I will never, ever go back to IE. Firebird is for lovers of the internet.

Tools> Internet Options> Homepage:
Set it to www.google.com or whatever you want... (that is if you havnt tried that already) Otherwise do the above and check for spyware. Good luck

Explanation of your problem

I recommend downloading/installing the following:

Spyware Blaster for prevention and then Spybot - Search and Destroy *or* Ad-aware 6 for removal and detection - I personally use both for maximum coverage.

good luck friend :thumbup:

I use Opera, I reckon it is definitely better than Mozilla 1.3a
Is Firebird any better than Opera?

I've also got the free ad supported version of Opera, but I haven't tried it out much.
