Pirated Homepage



The homepage I use when I log onto Internet Explorer (MSN.com) has been
pirated, and it cannot be changed using Internet Options (greyed out). I am
hoping that someone out there has run across this and has a fix for it. Not
only has my homepage been pirated, but other users on this computer have the
same problem. We get redirected to some page (yoursecuritysystem.com) that
claims that spyware has been detected and suggests that for $49.95, I can
download an antispyware program that will rid me of this page. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.
