Spyware problem/homepage

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Albert Alverez, Jun 19, 2004.

  1. Somehow some damn spyware program took the liberty to install itself on my
    computer. It hijacked my homepage and made it where I can't specify a
    homepage. I got rid of it but still can't specify my homepage because it's
    greyed out in internet options. How can I fix this?
