question ? are you using the same icon to click to go to your Home page?
remember this. !
right click everything ! as it gives you more options/ more menu's

right click that homepage icon and then from the drop down menu select
properties and see what it says... lookin for the B.O.A. crap

if it does, proceed to step two. go back to control panel- internet connection
-home page and put in what you want hit apply ok and then drag the address line mini icon to the desktop,
so you can just use the new one and delete the old one.

what operating system you on?

05-08-2012, 03:22 PM
WINDOWS VISTA 2007 SERVICE PAC 2 whatever that is

It's not BOA you've probably just been infected with a little spyware.

Download Spybot or something similar and run several times.

Vista had allot of issues ..... and was basically considered one of
microsofts failure operating systems...

that being said ....i was wondering if upon booting up you could tap
the F8key for alternate boot modes and arrive at the screen that
allows you to return to "last known good configuration"
which allows you to specify a time
say 30 days ago, when everything worked pissah

try it and see ....or go to and do what Spence suggested
find a program that searches your PC for those little nasty's
