hijack browser
My comcast browser opens with "www.hjmcomcast.net" which is not a web page.
It should not have the hjm. I tried to reset the homepage numerous times but
to no avail. It's still there and will not go away. I have explorer 7
Even when I try to reset it to default which is yahoo it will not change.
Help me please

Re: hijack browser
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista SP1) and your
IE version when posting to this newsgroup, please.

Can you not change it at all or can you change it but the change doesn't
"stick" after you close/reopen IE or reboot?

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is the
subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
What third-party firewall (if any)?

It might be a security program blocking the Registry change it needs to
make. A few, but not all, of the programs now doing this are:
Ad-aware's Ad-Watch
IBM Access Connections
McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
Norton AV
Spyware Blaster
Spybot> Tools> IE Tweaks
Spybot- Teatimer
Spysweeper
Spyware Doctor
Windows Defender
Zone Alarm (free) 6.5 Reported to be fixed in later versions.

In the case of Zone Alarm 6.5 or Norton 2007 it actually has to be
uninstalled. Make sure the Windows Firewall is turned on until you
reinstall Zone Alarm.

Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and try the change.
