I just started having this problem also. VERY irritating! Hopefully someone has a solution.

Then I suggest you don't let software change your homepage...

I can't speak for Melinda, but I know that my problem has nothing to do with my homepage. This is a pop-up window that continually comes up every few minutes any time I'm online. I usually have to hit cancel four times before it goes away... until another few minutes. This problem just started last week. Here is the text that pops up:

Paula,

The title of this thread is: "how do stop this from popping up every time i click home ..."


Probably best to start your own thread, since your problem isn't exactly the same as what this thread is about.

I had assumed this request came from Google, which thought apparently no longer recognized my computer when I opened my google home page. I typed in my user name and password. Now I am wondering if maybe this had nothing to do with google, but is some sort of spyware seeking usernames and passwords. Does anyone know how to find out what this thing is?
