Although I resolved this problem on my own by recovering my HDD but in the future I want to avoid this as it wipes everything off my C drive. My IE was hijacked with this homepage and it's annoying everytime I open IE it goes to hao123.com. I got this by installing qvod player which a lot of Chinese people use to watch TV shows in China and HK. Please let me know a quick fix to this so if I happen to get this again I can resolve it without recovering my HDD. Thanks.
