can anyone please tell me if anti spyware programs can lock your start page in internet explorer so that you cannot change it no mater what you do as i had pc service call installed on my laptop and could not change it i was told by pc world that it was the anti spyware that was locking it thanks leo

You should be able to change the homepage setting from the tools in the anti-spyware program.

I really would not rely too heavily on what PC World staff tell you. Some of them know what they are on about; a lot don't.

not in my opinion sounds more like he might have meant spyware is locking it what anti spyware do you have?

Hi, Spybot can do this in advanced mode, (I mean lock the home page)so maybe some others can as well, you can obviuosly reset this . You don't say which you've got. Regards, yaesu
