My OS is Windows XP. My browser is Mozilla Firefox. I went into Firefox options and set my home page to I Google. Now you would think that the home page should stay the one you want. but mine does not. When i log out of Firefox and then log back in a home page called Fastp2psearch.com becomes my home page. I've tried several ways to get rid of it for good to no avail. Does anyone know how to remove this for good?

Hi satisfier. Welcome to TSF!

Any chance you use Limewire, Napster, or other P2P software? Sounds like you have a browser hijacker.

[SOLVED] Browser keeps going back to previous page (Windows 7)

IE Explorer Home Page Default
My system administrator in his infinite wisdom has reset my home page to the company newsletter page. He has also somehow locked me out so I cannot change it. Is there any way to change out a locked home page? Thanks, Carl
