    Hi all,

    I'm having a very strange problem with Internet Explorer. Whenever I boot my
    computer and open IE my homepage has been changed to this url:
    res://mshp.dll/index.html#37049.

    I change it back every time and every time I reboot it goes back to that web
    page. I can't find any application that has been installed that would do
    this. Could this be from a virus? I did a virus scan but came up with
    nothing. Anyone know what this is?



    Any help appreciated,



    Thanks
