    A friend sent me to this site after I told him searchdot.net has replaced my home page. I've tried to reset my default but it still goes back. I'm not a whiz on the computer. I sure could use some help. :)

    Hi soonerbred4ever.

    I believe that searchdot.net can be a part of, or a variant of CoolWebSearch. You could try running CWShredder which can be found here, and then of course follow snowbounds link thereafter :).

    Regards,
    Jade.
