when you say its stuck on that site do you mean you cant navigate to a new website or that the parcel website always comes up when you connect to internet.

You may have inadvertently made it your homepage

Hi mate, Hold down the power button for about ten seconds until it reboots.

It would appear that your software used to access the internet has saved the settings forbthe default web page. What software do you use to access the internet eg internet explorer, google chrome etc and what operating system eg windows 7 or 8, Vista etc? If you can change to another site do you want to change your default page to something in particular?
