This sounds like you have downloaded some malware. A good solution would be to uninstall IE 6, run a system scan with your anti-virus software, then install IE 8. IE 8 is a much more secure browser, and when using IE 8, a situation like this is much less likely to occur.

Here is a link to get you started with IE 8.

I myself wouldn't recommend IE8....its WAY too SLOW, that's why I said IE7....twice as fast and just as safe.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers

whatever browser you use, you can always get infected. What you can do to make your browsing better is by optimizing your IE setting and getting a good antivirus program.

Although, it doesn't mean that your computer will be 100% virus free, it is better than leaving your computer open to every intrusions.

I'd go for the more popular ones since there would normally be a have a support team to assist you when something goes wrong.

Also, you can learn virus troubleshooting on your own. It's pretty easy.

Search about process explorer and autoruns. You won't need any antivirus anymore once you learn them.

Yes, while I'd recommend Firefox over any other browser, simply having the best browser won't be enough to stop malware and other nasty apps redirecting you to sites like this.

The two programs I'd recommend are Spybot Search & Destroy, and also Malwarebytes if it's a deeper running infection.

Use them and you should be able to pick up the threat that's latched on to your browser. Even if you want to stick with IE though, it's definitely worth upgrading! IE6 is being slowly phased out across many websites.
