Long and short your home page has been hijacked. The previous responses are all correct and you need to follow their advice with one extra step. Every time you download or install software, do it slowly and carefully reading EVERY page/window that opens so you don't just keep hitting enter and key past the point where it says " hey sucker if you don't read this and say no we are going to make changes you don't want" and this is the gospel truth...
Your computer browser is the program that you use to connect to the internet. Its called a browser because you use it to "browse" the internet.
Common browsers are programs like Internet Explorer (which is the blue "e" on your desktop) or Mozilla Firefox (which looks like a blue planet wrapped in red flames or wings).
You close a browser by clicking on the red "x" in the upper right hand corner of your screen. If you click on the "-" which is located to the left of the red "x" in the upper right hand corner of your screen while on the internet, this minimizes the browser and puts it on the bottom of your computer screen. You can see which windows are open by looking at the bottom of your computer screen. When windows are minimized, they look like squares and have the name of the page which is open on them displayed for easy reading. To close a browser that is minimized to the bottom of your pc screen, click on it with your mouse and then click on the red "x".
Depending on your processor and what you have open at the time, you can minimize the screen your in and open Inernet Explorer, etc., then you can minimize and maximize, going back and forth between windows. Am i on the right track? Dave
I would suggest you to uninstall the toolbar and check. Follow the steps mentioned below. a.Close all Internet browsers. b.Uninstall
the toolbar through your "Add/Remove Programs" utility. Choose the
"Start" button in the lower left-hand corner of your computer screen,
and then click "Control Panel." Choose
"Add/Remove Programs" and the programs that are installed on your PC
will be listed. Choose "MSN toolbar" and then "Change/Remove." You will
be instructed to verify if you wish to continue with the uninstall.
Choose "OK" and continue to follow the instructions
by choosing "Next" until the uninstall completes. c.Uninstall
the toolbar by using the "Run" utility if you are running Windows XP.
Click "Start" and then "Run" and type "appwiz.cpl" in the text box.
Press "Enter" and the programs that
are installed on your PC will be listed. Choose "MSN toolbar" and click
"Remove." You will be instructed to verify if you wish to continue with
uninstall. Choose "OK" and continue to follow the instructions until
uninstall completes. d.Open
a browser and verify that the MSN toolbar is no longer displayed. You
may need to restart your PC after uninstall is complete.
You can close your browser window by clicking on the red "x" in the top right hand side corner of your screen. The red "x" means "close". The "square" in the center next to the "x" means make "bigger". The - key next to the square in the upper righ hand side corner of your screen means "minimize". "Minimize" means bring the window to the bottom of the screen. It's like tucking it away or hiding it. If your window is full size and you click the minimize button, it will make the screen a smaller square in the center of your monitor. If you click it again, it hides the window at the bottom of your screen. You can see which windows re open by reading the labels at the bottom of your screen. To bring a screen back up to regular size when its minimized on the bottom - just click on it with your mouse.
TIPS: The default behavior for IE is to open at the same size it was at the last time it was closed. While the default does apply in many cases it's not always consistent.
Try the following workaround. Open a single IE window to the smaller size. Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Do not use the maximize button to enlarge the window. Hold down the Ctrl key, keep it depressed, and using the mouse click File and then Exit on the menu bar. Do not use the "X" in the upper right corner to close the window. Internet Explorer should now open in a full window. If it still opens to a smaller size repeat the above instructions, substituting the "Shift" key for the "Ctrl" key.

Under Class, noted number of folders under NETTRANS key.
