Security Update for Windows XP (KB938464)
Ok I ran this the other night.
Now every time I log onto the net my homepage is some microsoft crap trying
to get me to buy their internet security.
It won't let me permanently change back to google and blocks things like
speedtest as being unsafe, spyware etc.
I tried to find it in remove programs but can't find it.

Please, please some kind soul advise me how I find and remove this intrusive
garbage from my PC

Re: Security Update for Windows XP (KB938464)
Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3) when posting to
this newsgroup, please.

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

I'd very much doubt installing KB938464 had anything to do with the behavior
you're seeing.

Post a URL of this homepage offering "some microsoft crap" relating to
"internet security". (If it's about XP Antivirus 2008 or 2009, it has
nothing whatsoever to do with Microsoft.)
