    I have a problem with my browser were it won't allow me to change the homepage. I set it in the Tools>internet options but then when i open a new browser window it has this as the homepage:

    http://213.159.117.134/index.php

    Then I use to have a problem with spywear detected error #384 so I couldn't log on to google and the error message would show up when I went to Msn.com as well. Please help me out. Google is my search engine, and when I log out of Hotmail I use to read the articles on Msn.com now instead of those error messages i get a The page cannot be displayed message. I was able to get rid of the error#384, but I would like to get everything back to running order.

    here's me log file:
