My Home page keeps pointing to an offensive website

Question: My Home page keeps changing to an offensive website, I have tried changing it several times but every time I reboot the computer it changes back. Please help.

Answer: It sounds like you have whats called a webpage hijacker on your computer caused by spyware and certain viruses. Unfortunately with this particular problem, most of the time there is no easy quick fix to repair it and your computer will most likely need to be brought to a computer technician to remove this pesky problem.
