How to change your homepage?

Question

My internet start page has been hijacked by "Globe-Finder.net". I have followed you instructions for changing start pages, but I still get Globe-finder each time I reboot the pc and access the web.

Would appreciate any advice on how I can get rid of this.

I have tried making Yahoo my start page and it works while the computer is on. But, at reboot, I am back to Globe-finder.

Thanks
