Using Windows XP and aol 8. After i've been online my homepage has changed in internet properties.When i try to change it back to aol.com the "Use Current" button is a lighter shade than the "Use Default" or "Use Blank" buttons and appears to be disabled.So cant save my choice of homepage.Any ideas why?

Yes thanks Powerless. Think i saw a JS Exception code when i ran my antivirus a while back and the microsoft page u directed me to said this can change your homepage. Bit scared of messing with the registry in case i knacker something up!

Get StartpageGuard from click here

Once installed, run it and click on the padlock on the left hand side. Then enter your desired home page address in the box and click the padlock again to lock it.
