I have Windows 7 Home Premium as my OS, and I have a news site I like as my homepage, however, it keeps resetting to a generic search engine called conduit.com. I reset the homepage everyday as my only homepage, yet the next time I go to it, the generic is up again. How can I reset this permanently and block out this reset?
Rebecca, this is a fairly common problem. You seem to have been hijacked. While the conduit search page isn’t a virus, most users are entrapped by it being added on to advertisements or downloads that people innocently click on.
I covered how to handle this issue with Eazel last week and the method is still the same. Click here for the article. The only difference is that you’ll be looking for the Conduit Community Toolbar instead of Eazel.
