I use Browser Hijack Blaster to prevent my homepage from changing.
Do any other programs stop this from happening????

Winpatrol, TeaTimer of Spybot S&D, SpywareGuard also protect changes in homepage.

Many other antispyware program offer that protection.

My IE 7 is acting strange!

I have WinXP; also Roadrunner is my ISP. I can get to my homepage (RR) through Firefox but when I click on IE I get a message that says
Adobe Flash Player needs an upgrade. I have "upgraded" this several times and it still won't get to my RR homepage. It gives me a "no thanks" option but still shows back up. I seldom use IE although it works in my Outlook Express. Did a system restore and that did not change anything. Anyone out there have a solution? Thanks!

Betsy (It's not a big deal, I can still type in www.rr.com (etc.) and get IE but I just like for everything to work correctly).
