    This - "Search123* Fastsearch the web" - has taken over as the default
    home page in Int.Exp. Tried to change the Home Page setting in Int.Exp.
    but this other one keeps over-riding it.

    Cannot find any reference to this in any programme on the HD.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of this as the content is not the type
    of thing children should be facing when they want to access the Internet.

    Thanks
