Preferred Solution: Look-Today home page

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Look-Today home page

Hi Jody and welcome to TSF.. :)

There's nothing directly related in your log to Look-Today, although I do see one file that needs to go. Have you reset your homepages to Google before posting the log?

Also you are running an old version of HJT, so could you please open HJt, click on Config | Misc. Tools | Check for Update online and follow the promts to get the latest one, which is V1.98.0, and then reboot and post a new log. That way it should show up the problem.

This is a really stupid problem. My Acer Netbook with XP worked fine on my wireless network at home this morning. I unplugged it, folded it shut and put it in my bag to bring to work with me (I did not shut it down, never do, has always connected right away). At work, it says it's connected but has little or no connectivity because it can't get an IP address. I've done the refresh/renew, stack resets, nothing works. I got it to connect normally once, (no idea what I did) but couldn't get to the internet, so rebooted and then it won't connect at all again. I will know whether this is a hardware failure or not when I get home and try to connect, but does this sound like a router problem, or something internal? Thanks for any help.

Due to corona virus my wife started working from our home office last week. She used our personal PC to connect to her work through Citrix with a few hiccups but eventually no problem. Our PC connects to internet via wifi due to distance from router.
This week she was unable to connect. Her IT department couldn't resolve it and said it can't connect because it is not cabled?????
So my wife had to go to work, collect her computer and bring it home. We now have our outdoor garden table in the living room as a makeshift office so she can plug her work computer into the router. Two kids and husband confined at home too!

Apart from buying a 10m network cable is there a fix to get connected via wifi?

 We have a domain environment with the roughly 300 computers.  Almost all the computers are Windows 7 and we have has the default home page define my GPO for years.

 July 2017 we had about 50 Computers change the default  homepage that points to a Microsoft link that redirects to a msn page. The msn page is no longer a valid page.  I cannot find a pattern between the computers,  The policies are
still apply and it just does not reset the default webpage for the user profile.  If you reset the Internet explorer settings everything works as normal and he gets the policy homepage.

 I ruled out malware  with multiple tools could find nothing to suggest it had been hijacked.

 If I log into a different  user account on the same computer that user account does not have the same problem.  My Theory was a old Microsoft patch some how did this, but I could not find a patch that had ran on the affected PC's.

Do you mean you have another topic covering the same problem?

If so, you should post that you are receiving help here and mark the topic solved otherwise you might end up with conflicting advice.


Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Right click to run as administrator. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will produce a log called (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run from.
Please copy and paste log back here.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please also paste that into your reply.

Dell is my preferred laptop brand, but these shared keys on the arrow keys are unusable.  I don't use desktops, so my laptop is my main workstation and I use these keys very often.
Ever since Dell got rid of the last row of buttons, I had to look for other options.  They claim that it makes the laptop more compact, but there are still ample space on the sides.  Look at the Dell Precision 5520 as an example - wide open spaces.  I liked their older design much better with the shortened right shift button and full-size arrow keys and home, end, pg up/down in the last row.
I now have a HP EliteBook 1040 G3 instead.  It's only 14", but comes with a much better keyboard layout.  That was actually the deciding factor.  It would have been a Dell otherwise.
I know many other people are also feeling the same way, so I hope R&D will address this.  I'll gladly switch back to Dell once they do.

A:Poor keyboard layout lately (Home, End, Page Up, Page Down)

Yeah, this has come up quite a bit, especially on the Precision models where as you say there's space.  I have a Precision 5520 and a Latitude 7480.  Not only does the 7480's keyboard feel better, but it has dedicated PgUp and PgDn keys right in a space where the 5520 has....nothing.  Would have been easy to at least add those.  As for Home and End being shared, my previous system (a Precision M6300) had all of these navigation keys in their proper 3 across, 2 down arrangement in the upper-right corner, which I loved, so using Home/End as shared keys was annoying at first -- but I have to say, after really setting my mind to it, I got comfortable with it after about 2 weeks, and now I don't have any real problem switching between my 7480's keyboard and my Das Keyboard Ultimate, which has a traditional layout.
Anyhow, these complaints came up frequently on NotebookReview in a thread where a Dell Precision product manager is active, so I think there's a chance things will improve with the next refresh. :)

Recently, I changed DSL providers from Earthlink to another company. I did this for two reasons: the Earthlink throughput was awful, and their tech support was virtually useless. After numerous attempts to get the speed problems resolved I finally gave up. Upon ordering the new provider's service, I uninstalled Earthlink from my PC. Problem is, no matter what I do, my IE home page is the Earthlink start page. I have used the IE options to change it, it goes right back to Earthlink. I have changed it in the registry, it goes right back to Earthlink. I have checked for spyware/adware, run registry cleaner, you name it. Is my PC going to be forever haunted by Earthlink? I have XP home edition, latest version. Can someone rid me of this troublesome home page?

Home page redirected to dosearch.com and since that started happening I'm getting a bunch of pop-ups and ads telling me my browser needs to be updated for security reasons. I removed dosearch.com from my list of home pages in internet options but it still comes up when first going online. I have found info about it online but they are mostly web pages that offer a bunch of costly removal tools which makes me wonder if they are in on it.
I greatly appreciate your help. Below is the DDS.txt file and I have attached the ATTACH.txt file.

A:my home page is diverted to an uknown web page

Hi noroots

Welcome to TSG!

Click here to download CWShredder. UnZip the file, close all browser windows and click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished Restart your computer.

IMPORTANT!: To help prevent this from happening again, I strongly recommend you install the patches for the vulnerabilities that this hijacker exploits.

The simplest way to make sure you have all the security patches is to go to Windows update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs"

Go here and download Adaware 6 Build 181

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now and download the latest referencefiles.

Make sure the following settings are made and on -------ON=GREEN

From main window :Click Start then Activate in-depth scan (recommended)

Click Use custom scanning options then click Customize and have these options selected: Under Drives and Folders put a check by Scan within archives and below that under Memory and Registry put a check by all the options there.

Now click on the Tweak button in that same window. Under Scanning engine select Unload recognized processes during scanning and under Cleaning Engine select Let windows remove files in use at next reboot

Click proceed to save your settings.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal a... Read more

This problem is either Networking/connection or XP issue, but I want to find out what's the problem is.

The issue is that whenever start-up PC/XP, 'not connected,' page appears instead Home-Page. After a couple of second, it shows 'now connected' in the rectangular-box at the right bottom of corner of task-bar and I need to click to open 'Home-Page' manually although I set 'I.E.' on start-up to open Home-Page automatically.

It appears to me that my ISP is slow connection, but of course I can not be sure.

How to open up Home-Page, instead seeing 'not connected' page?

Thanks for your help in advance.

A:'Not connected' Page instead "Home Page'

You Network Adapter loads last on your computer and it takes up to a minute to connect to the internet. So, everything else is going to load first before you can access a web page. So, if you have IE set to open with Windows, it is going to show a not connected message until you get an internet connection. Better to not have IE load at startup and just be patient. You can also, just leave your computer on and the internet connection always on.

I've got a problem. After installing some silly small program from the Internet, I cannot change the start
page in my browser any more. It is defaults to some
address that displays a frame as a bar on top with
some ads. I WANT IT TO BE REMOVED but no matter what
I did it stayed there. I think the IE files might
have been patched by that prog?

Any advice will be greatly apreciated. Thank you!

Is this normal?

A:HJT Log -- Home page changed to Home Search

Your log shows that you are seriously behind on windows updates. It is essential that you update your windows before we continue to help you as the infections could reoccur. Go to http://www.windowsupdate.com and if it asks to install software, let it. Then click on the Scan link and let it do its thing. When its done you will see on your left a section called critical updates. Click on that section and install everything that you can. When it prompts you to reboot, do so. Then repeat this process again until there are no more critical updates listed. Install Service Pack 4 and all critical updates.After the installation of the last update make sure you REBOOT the computer, run HijackThis again and post a new log please.Download this: Getservices.zipExtract the file to the c:\ drive. Then navigate to the c:\getservices folder and double-click on the getservices.bat file. A notepad will open up. Please paste the contents of that notepad as a reply to this post.The trojan mutates on every reboot.From the moment you post your list, until you see a detailed fix written up, DO NOT reboot your system or log off. If you do, the service will have changed and the fix provided will not work.

Though this is related to Win 7 but I think many of you may guide me regarding this. I installed Win 7 Professional SP1 which has IE 11 bundled in it. Now whenever I open IE it will open my home page i.e google but within seconds, it will change to other page (image attached). I have not installed any thing so far except wifi lan driver. Can some one guide that what is this page and whether it is genuine and how can I remove this.


A:IE 11 starting a particular page instead of my set home page

Hi where did you try and set your home page for google
Only looks like an Advert keeps coming up.
I get that If I go into a site
before I log in or sign up

Also sorry but I don't use either IE11 or Google
I use Edge Browser and Bing

Also make sure when you set your home page that you click Apply then OK

Hello: I just received some windows updates as well as upgrading to Internet Explorer 7.
Note: I had to remove IE 7 the other day as I was having issues opening certain webpages.

Anyway, IE 7 seems to be navigating fine, other than the fact that when I click on my desktop icon to launch Internet Explorer it opens to a webpage that allows you to Customize Your Settings.

Although, I have www.google.com as my home page within Internet Options (General tab), Google does not open, but rather http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 opens then quickly converts to http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx which then opens the Customize Your Settings webpage.

I noticed that the default setting in Internet Options is displayed as http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 , so I tried to change that to www.google.com, but it reverts back to http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69157 .

Any suggestions?

Thanks, Ted569

A:Home page automatically opens to "Customize Your Settings" page

That is new with IE7.0. You should only have to run through the customization once though. Then click "Go To My Homepage." That should be all. Have you done that yet?

I have a field for data a appoinment is for in an access table and i need to apply validation to allow entry of todays dat or anydate after today.
I have tryed stuff like ">=Now()" or ">Now() and =Now()" but nothing works please help
also can anybody help with my other problem about No changes to certain field in a table or form


A:Solved: Access Date Today or after today

If this is the same field as the first post then you will be stuck with the default value of Now() or Date().
If it is a different field then in the validation property use >=Date().
Date() is used when you do not need to store the "Time" as well as the date, Now() stores the Date and the Time.

Is there a way to make Internet Explorer's "New Window" button open my home page instead of the page that I was just on?

I like to open a new window and search something real quick on google (with it big, not using the searchbar in the top right as its tiny up there).

When you open Internet Explorer in a whole other instance, it uses memory that it would otherwise not use had you just opened a "new window".

So, is there any sort of registry tweak, etc. that could make "New Window" open my homepage instead of the page I was JUST on? That's not a New Window... That's the same Window...

Any help would be appreciated, thx.
