    I take it you mean your homepage keeps being reset to http\\.?

    If that`s the case, it`s possible your system is infected with malware.

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s as maybe, but an antivirus programme won`t stop every kind of malware there is. That`s why I suggested you post a HJT log as per the instructions in the link I gave you.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    R3 - URLSearchHook: Yahoo! Toolbar - {EF99BD32-C1FB-11D2-892F-0090271D4F88} - (no file)

    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\RunOnce: [configmsi] cmd /c "rmdir /q C:\config.msi" (User 'SYSTEM')

    O4 - HKUS\S-1-5-18\..\RunOnce: [supportdir] cmd /c "rmdir /q /s "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\{48227AEB-DC8E-4A90-A274-0B4A39D699B1}"" (User 'SYSTEM')

    O4 - HKUS\.DEFAULT\..\RunOnce: [configmsi] cmd /c "rmdir /q C:\config.msi" (User 'Default user')

    O8 - Extra context menu item: Search &Dictionary - C:\Program files\Lexico\Toolbar\dictionary.htm

    O8 - Extra context menu item: Search &Thesaurus - C:\Program files\Lexico\Toolbar\thesaurus.htm

    O9 - Extra button: (no name) - {9819CC0E-9669-4D01-9CD7-2C66DA43AC6C} - (no file)

    O16 - DPF: {0246ECA8-996F-11D1-BE2F-00A0C9037DFE} (TDServer Control) - http://gujarateducation.gswan.gov.in/e-book/tdserver.cab

    O16 - DPF: {1A8AE742-2CDF-43E6-B3B9-C17F0AD302B0} (nCodeC1.nCodectl) - https://www.nprocure.com/include/pki/nCodeC1.CAB

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold files and/or directories(if there).

    C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\{48227AEB-DC8E-4A90-A274-0B4A39D699B1}<Delete the entire folder.

    Reboot into normal mode and rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and let me know how your system is running.

    Regards Howard :)
