Spyware

I am really pissed. I forget what the last program was that I downloaded but it inserted this code into my IE page.

Now this is just so when I open up IE yahoo search is my home page, but they could have got the same effect by just using www.uk.search.yahoo.com so what are the 586 characters for? what are they doing on my computer?

Hi Maffi,
IE isn't very secure and this isn't uncommon.
If you change to Google Chrome you shouldn't have this problem.

I have had FF and Chrome and Edge a few others beside and they all allow it to happen. Chrome picks up that section of IE and transplants it into their system

I think, you need to install internet Security antivirus like McAfee, Norton. You can also use Tor browser; It'll not track you.
