doctor,pctools firewall plus) and the remanients of Norton that came wih the
pc, as well as the spybot (which was installed fter the problem exisit) and
all the toolbars like google,yahoo etc and the problem disappeared.( fyi
before I unistalled all these, I also try to reset the IE to default but the
problem still persist and the home page is MSN)
Now the pc is working fine or at least the web page seems to appears pretty
