I just reconfigured my computer due to a virus which I caught while in between antivirus programs. Now my IE refuses to allow me to remove Yahoo as my first homepage. I know how to make this change in IE in the Tools menu. It allows me to add additional homepages, but whenever I try to change my first homepage to Google, Pandora or just blank, it just ignores the change as if it never happened. The same goes for when I use the link on the bottom of google to add it as my homepage. I can't seem to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure how you removed the virus but it sounds like you still may have a hidden infection.
I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Add a link to this topic so that malware tech can see what steps have been taken here

Something simple you might try is this.....

start>all programs>accesories>system tools>disk clean up

leave everything checked that is and hit ok.

This is good for browser redirecting, and this type of thing.

Hope this helps.
