this issue has being happening for over a year but because i had small knowdlege on how to get rid of it, I  went to a different route and installed netscape navigator which i hate.  

every time i open IE  it redirects me to porno sites that i did not set up as my default page.   even when i go and change it from internet options it gets changed right back to the porno website to become the default.  

what can i do?
