IE homepage highjack: prevention

Post by Nettranspl » Tue, 28 Oct 2003 10:17:59


Is there a way to prevent homepage high jacking? I have just cleaned an
office with a small workgroup, all patches and service packs up to date,
and every w2k pro set had the homepage forced to a lop.com site either
through a corrupted shortcut or registry change. Norton doesn't seem to
stop this process although I thought this might be malicious script.

Comments?

Use Netscape or Mozilla instead of Internet Explorer. You won't regret it.

if it gets changed when a user is on chances are they are allowed to
change it .. if disable this the "hompage scripts" wont run as tha
interactive user
