JSI Tip 5787. Internet Explorer displays adult content, even after you change your settings?

To resolve this issue:

1. Use tip 0016, StartUpCPL, or MSConfig to locate any unknown file that is starting. I had one user report that the registry Run entry contained:
C:\WINDOWS\regedit.exe /s C:\WINDOWS\system32\rad2A832.tmp.

Inspect, and if necessary, disable any unknown objects.

2. Use the following rad2A832.tmp entries, from that same user, as a model to the Value Names you will need to correct:

REGEDIT4

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Start Page"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Start Page"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Search Page"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Search Bar"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\]
"SearchURL"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search\]
"CustomizeSearch"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search\]
"SearchAssistant"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Search Page"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main\]
"Search Bar"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\]
"SearchURL"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search\]
"CustomizeSearch"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"

\[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search\]
"SearchAssistant"="http://www.underlolitas.com/cgi-bin/potop.cgi?action=in&ACC=751"
Basically, determine the pattern of the URL, in this example it is www.underlolitas.com, and search for it in the entire registry. Replace any occurrences found with appropriate entries.

NOTE: Here are some valid default settings:

"Default_Page_URL"="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&pver=6&ar=msnhome"
"Default_Search_URL"="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch"
"Search Page"="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&ar=iesearch"
"Start Page"="http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=\{SUB_PRD\}&clcid=\{SUB_CLSID\}&pver=\{SUB_PVER\}&ar=home"
