Browser Hijacked!
Rod Aug-22-02 03:41 AM
Hi,
I am not sure if this is the correct place to put this one, but anyhow I will ask.

This guy had his browser hijacked.
He uses Win98 SE and everytime he opens a browser his home page will not come up. He went into Tools>Internet Options>General to try and put the settings back to his home page but it is all now blanked out.
It goes to a porn site called Lolita or something to that effect.
Is this Browser hijacking?
How can this be fixed?
Would he uninstall IE5 which I think he has running at the moment, though he could have Netscape, not sure, and re-install it?
Or does he now have to do something in his registry?

Thanks

Looks like it. Here is some general info.

Perhaps another reader has the specifics on "this guy's" Lolita weakness, eh, affliction. Larry
