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

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?
