    Could someone help me. I can connect to the internet, but am unable to view any web pages. Also homepage keeps changing from my normal one to this one: www.microsoft.com/isapi/redirect ?prd=ie&pver=6&ar=msnhome or something along those lines.

    I am wandering if it may be a virus, but Mcafee internet security suite 2005 doesnt pick anything up on system scan.

    Any ideas would be much appreciated

    Isn't that Internet Explorer just checking to see that it's the latest version? I'm sure there's an option to turn that off under tools->internet options.

    It shouldn't keep changing homepages and not letting view at sites

    It doesn't change the homepage, but it will load that up first, then move onto your homepage post-check, given that your IE is the latest version.
