Odd tab opens at startup

Post by Bob Loblaw » Sat Jun 30, 2007 12:50 am

When I open 11.5 b11 a tab opens with "http://-helper/ in the address bar.

It's not that big a deal but it's new with b11 & it's odd so I thought I would report it.

Check under Tools->Avant Browser Options->Home page and see if anything has snuck in there. Try build 12. If it still show I'd screen for malware--I don't trust "helpful" mystery pages.

Run Spybot http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html
and/or AdAware http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/
