While looking for drivers for my cellphone, I got some malware on my computer. Now whenever I click my "home" icon, start.funmoods.com starts up instead of my google homepage. I'm running Chrome on Windows 7 but I may have been using it as an IE-based tab. I have McAfee Security and have run Spybot, Adaware, ARO, but still the funmoods remains. I am not really in a fun mood anymore :(

Just go into settings and change your default homepage back. Sometimes they sneak changes in on you. If it doesn't change back to funmoods it's probably not malware.

get your computer a sadmood trojan to compete ??

just for the record anything that changes your home page i can be evil but if its a reputable company they could mean no harm just tryingto get you to link to them ..

OMG I was overthinking it. I just went to settings and deleted the funmoods from the home button tab and now it's fixed. Thank you so much, it was making me crazy(ier). I do like the idea of a sadmood trojan to compete.
