Good day!

The homepage of my browser has been stuck to http://url-removed and I can't seem to remove it. What should I do?

Thank you

Sounds like you have a spyware infection. Try a scan with specific anti-spyware tools, like Spybot Search & Destroy or Adaware.

I gues you've tried to restore your home page through the Internet Explorer Tools/Internet Options/Use Default without any success. After that, I would try the free Ad-Aware SE. It's available on the LavaSoft Web Page. If you use Windows XP for your operating system, try a system restore to some time prior to when you noticed the hijack. Finally, do a search on the Web for "hijacked browser fix."

Regards,

Another nice tool to solve these kinds of problems is "HijackThis". It can be downloaded from http://www.merijn.org/programs.php#hijackthis.
