i dont know how this happened, but i think its because some of the programs that had been downloaded from the internet unknowingly. my problem is that most of the time i want to open a website, if it takes few times, then always a page known as www.lop.com comes up. i dont remember anytime when i have gone to this website and dont know how it came to my pc. to solve this problem, i deleted all the offline contents, and even its cookies, but still this problem happens. my home page curruntly is msn.com, so i dont know why this lop.com comes up everytime. so can u please give some help on this matter.

Try this.

-Start / run
-type: msconfig
-go to 'startup'
-remove all ticks beside programs except the one beside system tray
-click ok and restart as prompted

Try again. Has this solved the problem?
If so, then a program that was running was causing the problem. Add the ticks in one by one until you find out which one was causing the problem.

I think there may be a registry entry for this site... Search the registry for the string (www.lop.com) and see if it crops up. Personally, I would remove it if found, but I dare not recommend this procedure to anyone. Don't mess with the registry unless you feel comfortable doing so.

You've already received what you need in the above, would only add that you should apply this patch, very important for your Browser.
