Don't want Yahoo Homepage


I have a problem removing Yahoo as my homepage from my Pavilion 6535. I am using Explorer 5.5 and even when I make the changes in the Internet Options it only last for one or two long ons. When I look in the internet options the URL is correct but, Yahoo keeps popping up as my homepage. I would great appreciate any help you can give me. Thank.

Re: Don't want Yahoo Homepage


Maybe you should check the shortcut on your desktop where
you start explorer from.

the startup string should only contain the reference to explorer without any url's.

select the shortcut and push simultaniously the alt+enter buttons.

Here you should check the shortcut properties.

Remove any url's mentioned here.
