    Despite resetting my startup page in Internet Explorer many times, everytime I reset my computer it will startup with "Hotsearch" or some generic search engine. How do I get rid of this? Is it something to do with the registry?

    download AdAware, check for updates, and run a scan.

    it will more than likely fix the problem.

    Yep, sounds like a program has installed itself on your computer and is resetting your homepage for you.
