    Homepage keeps changing to about:blank

    How can I fix this? My Dads computers homepage keeps switching to about blank....

    I have downloaded:
    SPYBOT Search and Destroy
    Ad-Ware
    and
    bought Spy Sweeper

    And it still after 2 times going to the homepage it goes back to about:blank

    What can I do to fix this?

    when exactly does it go to about:blank ? If initially when you open a new window, check the properties for "homepage"

    A good effective option would be this:

    - http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/

    This is not 100% effective but, everytime I've gotten a homepage hi-jacker or something of the sort, all I had to was run this and it found it and showed me how to remove it.

    If everyone that made sites used strict HTML and other language then there wouldnt be this problem. Everyone got lazy because of IE, it's unfair to blame Mozilla when it's actually following the correct rules.

    IE displays 99.9% of sites properly. Mozilla struggles with at least 5 - 10% of sites. IE tries to be an Internet Browser and nothing else. Telling people to move over to Mozilla at the slightest cause of trouble (which is probably caused by nothing remotely to do with IE or Microsoft) is a bit unfair. To be quite frank, too many people spam any threads to do with IE, theres always a load of people spamming with the URL mozilla.org
