internet problem

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.

There's an uninstall program at:

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.
