    Hi
    I need some help with reguards to "Spyware" or "Hijackers" on my computer. When I boot-up the computer, my browser automatically comes up with an Erotic homepage. Apparently there are 2 pests on my computer. One is called "People on Page - Hijacker, and the other is "Coulomb Dialer". I ran a free Pest Patrol scan and that is what showed up. I have Spyware Guard, and it seems to alert me on boot-up, but it asks me if I want to keep my present "Porn" homepage of reset the old "Porn" page. My question is, how can I get Spyguard to nuke it or block it? I can copy and paste log files if need be. Thanks if you can help. Golfnut

    Hello golfnut1000

    Please go to this page and follow the instructions there. Someone will assist you further.

    In the meantime - regarding your homepage - simply enter the homepage you desire in the address line and go to it. Then (if you are using Internet Explorer) go to Tools>Internet Options>Homepage and click on Use Current. That should set your homepage at least temporarily to what you desire.

    Best wishes
