LeeTutor - please post a comment so I can award points.

my home page on Internet Explorer Ver. 5 is changed to a site not of my choosing whenever my
computer is started.  I've changed the home page using the Tools/Options menu in Internet Explorer,
and as long as I haven't shut down or restarted windows, I can reopen Internet Explorer many times without
the home page changing again.  I've also deleted a registry setting at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Search URL, but the registry is changed again when the Windows is restarted.  How can I find
out and prevent what is changing my home page?

Thanks,
Brian
