mkay, so here goes: when i start up IE, it takes me to "C:\searchpage.html" no matter what i change my homepage too, it always takes me right back to this page. i deleted this page, started up IE, it tells me it cannot find "C:\searchpage.html" and then i cant do anything until i close it. when i close it, however, it places that file back into my C: drive, and the whole thing gets repeated... i uninstalled and reinstalled IE, i ran Spybot and Ad-Aware, got rid of whatever, but nothings helping.
also, if i type into the address bar, say "google.com", it then tells me this: "You try to go to the google.com
For visit this site follow this link: HTTP://google.com
or type in full url (including HTTP://) in the adress bar."
what the hell? any help is muchly appreciated, thanks a lot
