This can be an indication that some PEST or PARASITE has installed itself on the machine. Five tools noted at If a link fails, use GOOGLE to find it such as CWSHREDDER. All the tools are free.

I downloaded and used every thing you suggested. No Luck! The interenet explorer goes to the assigned web page but then it diverts to a different site. It starts to phase in and out the homepage setting then goes to a different homepage. It doesn't finish the loading. It just does not connect to the internet.

1. Continue with the link provided and see what HIJACKTHIS finds. Use the LOG file to sniff out what's up.

2. I have some methods to remove and reinstall IE, but without the OS...
