After installing IE7 Spyguard started flagging the usual Browser page change alerts.I hardly use IE to begin with but because some sites/downloads don't acknowledge Firefox I updated it.I'm posting this here first,but if you think it's a malware issue I will redirect my post there.I'm just not sure which is the correct URL.Here is the latest Spyguard log.

IE7 changes the start, search and (on some systems) the home page when you install it. Therefore they are legitimate changes.

I say some systems because on this computer it reset the home page to MSN, on a system at work it kept the home page at Google.
