I've got 3 desktop at home connected togetter on a home network. My homepage as always been msn.com (usa) it still is on 2 of them but the other one started acting up about a month ago. At first everytime i open my homepage instead of msn.com i was getting bing`s homepage. I finally was able to get rid of this but now i`m always getting msn.ca. I`ve try everyting i know so far whit the same result msn.ca instead of msn.com any kind of help would be appreciated.

✔ Best Answer
Are you in Canada and what browser are you using on the computer that plays up, IE maybe?

I assume you have gone to msn.com and set your browser to Use Current (procedure will be different on other browsers such as Firefox and Chrome).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"I`VE TRY EVERYTING I KNOW SO FAR"

How abut letting us in on what you've tried so we don't just repeat steps you've already taken.

Have you tried deleting cookies, temporary Internet files, and history in your browser?

It's a long shot but download and Save the file from here (blue button top right):
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Double click the saved file to start the program then do the Scan. If it finds anything it is usually safe to let the Clean remove it but there are options under the table headings.

The reason for suggesting this is if you have unwanted toolbars or their remnants they could prevent you from changing the page.

Just to let you know .com is not actually an American domain, it is for any international commercial organization.

I'm assuming when you say msn.ca you actually mean ca.msn.com, and what you want is the default (non-canadian) msn.com.

Have you tried setting your homepage to:

www.msn.com/ncr

This works on some, and not for others, so you'll just have to try it.

Glad to hear you've solved it and thanks for popping back to let us know.

However, are the links you gave exactly right? Neither of the two sligly different links (#7 and #9) work for me in the UK. Do they work for you if you click them on here?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Mighty strange because when I click on the links you posted the one at #7 says no webpage found and the one at #9 says no MSN page found. Oh well, as long as one or other work for you on your computer but I would have thought one would have worked from me direct from your postings.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
