Can Netscape %26amp; IE co exist? I still have IE problems?download windows media player
Netscape versions prior to version 8 did not share anything with Internet Explorer, except for one very odd case of a bookmark issue where Netscape 6 was reading Internet Explorer's bookmarks. I doubt Netscape 8 is causing your problem, and in fact can gaurentee you it is not.
My guess would be that the problem is caused by Microsoft antispyware, or another antispyware tool. The problem is called homepage locking. Some antispyware tools will try and change the homepage to prevent spyware infections. Microsoft's antispyware, called Windows Defender does this and changes it to a Microsoft homepage.
Are you sure you provided me with a correct URL?
If you don't have an antispyware tool, I recommend WebRoot. Webroot (for pay software) gives you control over what homepage your browser(s) use.
Barring that, there is a free piece of software called IE Restrictions which may help.
If you think that Internet Explorer is changing its own settings, try turning off any antispyware tools, and trying this:
8.In Registry Editor, locate the following subkey, if it exists:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Mi... Explorer\Control Panel
9.If the ResetWebSettings value or the HomePage value exists in this key, right-click the values, and then click Delete.
Note You may also want to verify any Web site information contained in the Default_Page_URL value and the Start Page value in the following registry keys:
HKEY_ LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Interne... Explorer\Main
10.On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion.
11.On the File menu or on the Registry menu, click Exit to quit Registry Editor.
