If you even download software that changes your home page no matter how many times you try to change it in Internet options, it still reverts back to that page.

I downloaded and installed this piece of crap................Extra DVD to Audio MP3 Ripper

Here's how to get rid of it for good:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Extra DVD to Audio MP3 Ripper\Link\Home page]
@=\"http://www.dvdcopyrip.com
Change the registry entry under the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Extra DVD to Audio MP3 Ripper\Link\Home page]
to the home page you prefer under that key, such as

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Extra DVD to Audio MP3 Ripper\Link\Home page]
@=\"http://www.google.com
I hate when programs do this and this was a tough one as normally you just change the home page in Internet options.

A very good tip Reghakr! I remember this happening all the time when IE 7 first came out.. I had downloaded some stupid Audio ripper as well actually and it kept changing the homepage on me no matter what I tried.. I think I ended up having to do something just like what you've described here actually.. ;) Kudos my friend! :)

Piece of shit company and their advertising methods.

In my opinion, it steers people away.

They just don't get it.
