    IE is doing some funky stuff. Seems like whenever IE is having a slow connection to a site, it gets redirected. Also, the homepage is set to Yahoo, and a couple of times the homepage has been reset to the below pic website. I'm running on a dialup, any more info y'all need? Here's the pic of the end result:

    I know IE has an option that if the URL you typed does not exist (for example, you type www.gaggle.com by accident) it will try to autosearch for the page.
    You can turn it off via Tools -> internet options -> Advanced
    Maybe that's it.

    Sounds like it is timing out and then trying to do a search. Go to tool/internet options and check what home page it its trying to use. Your internet provider should have a tech line that they might be able to help you with.

    So you like the Opera browser ??? It's all some of my friends will use. For a search engine, try Web Ferret ( http://www.zdnet.com/ferret/ ) Web ferret searchs everything. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Well it is fast...but i just chucked it. It's also pretty unstable IMO. Damn thing froze up on me 3 times this morning...

    There were certain things that annoyed me too...mostly to do with the scroll wheel and what it was scrolling and how. You had to be there I guess.../forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Anyways...back with IE6.
