Hello my name is Chris and I will be happy to assist you.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble, it sounds like some toolbars or a browser hijacker was installed and made some changes.

I would like to connect to your computer to see if I can resolve this issue for you. Please let me know if you would like to try that.

Thanks

Are you having trouble connecting? It should only take a few seconds.

You need to click the link I give you and then click Join.

Next a small file will be downloaded, pay attention to an alert letting you know that it was downloaded and choose to Run the file.

If you do not see this then hold CTRL and J to open your downloads folder and double click the file called elsinore.

Here is the link again:

I waited for quite awhile and you never connected. Perhaps it was to difficult to connect.

I am going to instead give you instructions so you can try and fix this yourself.

In your internet explorer browser (blue E)

Click on Tools (if you do not see tools click on the gear icon on the top right) next choose Internet Options.

Click on the Advanced tab and Reset

Make sure delete personal settings IS NOT checked

Then click Reset again.

Click OK.

Close and re-open internet explorer

Next In your internet explorer browser, the blue E

Click on Tools (if you do not see tools click on the gear icon on the top right) next choose Internet Options.

You will see a box that says Home Page. Erase whatever is in that box and type foxnews.com

Next click apply and OK at the bottom.

If you need further help please do not hesitate to reply back and let me know.

Thank You
-Chris
