Is it my imagination or is Home Page Hijacking increasing?
I went to the Dell Support pages looking for information on an old Dell computer. They loaded up several tabs and windows. When I tried to go to my Home page it had been replaced by a Dell/Google page…kind of like stepping on someone’s discarded chewing gum. I replaced it with my preferred Home Page, this one of course, and then deleted all of my cookies, history, and temporary files…you know, like scraping your shoe on the first sharp edge you can find. I have already vowed not to buy another Dell computer due to their poor handling of the Vista fiasco. Now I may never even look at their website again.
Is there a setting buried deep within Internet Explorer that says “Disable Home Page Hijacking”?
