Like everyone else, I am having a problem with this stupid default webpage called "updatescentre.com" appearing on my Internet Explorer home page. (It doesn't affect my Mozilla page for some strange reason thank goodness).

I read somewhere else on these pages about pressing F8 to do a safe start. It doesn't seem to work on my computer, so I haven't been able to get that far.

I have listed below a print of my latest scan.
Maybe there is something that stands out for you to see. I hope any solution found for this will assist others.

I am a bit of a novice, but willing to give a go for whatever I need to do.

I am also running a home network using a Netgear RP114.

Any help where I can get rid of this would be appreciated.

Crazysambo !
