Something keeps changing my home page. Not finding any viruses. Does anyone know whats causing it?

Posted

I set my current homepage in options. It stays that way as long as FireFox is open. After I close it, it opens to some web page that it can't display.

This is also happening in IE. Any ideas? Scanning doesn't come up with any viruses, ect.

Do a malware check with some malware scan programs. You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of the database before doing a scan.
