Hello

Recently, it seems that something keeps changing my default homepage to www.if6.net. I have never been to this site before and have run ad-aware v6 to no avail. Does anyone know anything about this bug and how to remove it?

There's a Spyware FAQ on this forum - check it out from the FAQS link at top of page.Try the list of suggestions there then come back here if you still have the problem. ;-)

try running spybot as well. Definitely sounds like spyware to me. Are you running a firewall and uptodate anti-v? Always pays to do a full system scan when secret nasties start popping up out of nowhere as well.

A few months ago, I came across a prog called "Browser Hijack Blaster" Supposed to stop anyone hi-jacking your home page. It's running on this machine, but doesn't give a home address. A quick search on Google should find it.
