    Lenovo site embedded in home page

    I don't know how this happened but for a week every time I open my msn homepage this Lenovo site opens like a attachment to my home page. How can I eliminate this.

    It is because Lenovo pays Microsoft to allow them to have a homepage with their name on it. If you are using Internet Explorer. You would just need to go into Internet Options and change. If you are using another browser. You would go into that browser's settings and set accordingly.

    Now if it is resetting, which we call a "HiJack". There are programs like HiJackThis, which will help clear that registry entry.

    Thanks for the answer. I did what you said and it's OK. I never knew about this deal with MSN they have a lot of nerve playing with my personal property.
