Hi all

Windows XP SP2, IE6 and IE7, Jaws 8.

My home page used to be google but it has recently been changed to 
yahoo.co.uk when I installed IE7.

There seems to be no way that I can change the home page back to google.

It seems that some dirty tricks have been applied by yahoo to 
redirect users to their site.

On researching it it would appear that some computer manufacturers 
have planted the redirect code in IE7.

Changing back to IE6 makes no difference.

Using SpyBot, AdAware, XoftSpy and Norton resolves nothing.

Has anyone encountered this and if so, been able to get rid of the 
redirect code?

ncidentally, doing the obvious in IE7 internet options resolves nothing.
