  • 1. Programs in StartUp Folder
    Hello Experts, When I click on Start>Programs and point to StartUp, I see 5 to 6 program shortcuts there. I think these programs are in StartUp folder. Am I right? What is the purpose and importance of programs appearing in Start>Programs>StartUp? I think one of these programs is causing the computer to work slow. How can I disable it? Thank you, ----------------------------------- Allah says to Mankind: "Then which of the favours of your Lord will ye deny?"

homepage problems

Everytime I connect to the internet, my homepage always 
ends up being a search engine titled "about:blank." This 
happens even after I run my virus protection, ad-aware, 
spybot, and shredder. I also go to tools and reset my 
homepage, but with no luck.

use hijackthis to remove that search engine from the registry and assign
your own homepage:

Check and make sure your internet is hooked up and 
connected, then open internet Explorer and go to Tools, 
then click Internet Options.  Click on the General tab and 
you can change your homepage destination to where ever you 
want it to go.

Also as a note, you should only have ONE virus protection 
on your computer. If you have more than one, they will 
counter-act on each other and it'll end up not protecting 
your computer properly. And You should only have one kind 
of POP UP Blocker.
Hope that helps
