    Although I have been running this for a long while, today is the first time I have had an alert. It said my IE search page had been changed from: http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd-iear=iesearch to: http://home.microsoft.com/access/allinone.asp

    I allowed the change but really, I hadn't a clue. How does one know if a change is beneficial or not?

    Thanks

    Hi sandgroper,

    Although in this case no harm was done, I never allow changes of which I don't know where they are coming from.

    If I didn't initiate them, they are unwanted in my book.

    Regards,

    Pieter
