I use Google as my home page. This has now changed to UK.MSN.COM and no matter what I do I can't reset Google as home page. Any info out there. Thank you

Also check any antispy/antivirus program settings are not set to

For example Spybot search and destroy has a setting that will lock your homepage and can only be changed through its settings.

Sorry that one from zurdo did not do the trick.

Could you please next time use a better title for the thread so people can see what the problem is.
Something like "Homepage problem" would have been better.

You really need to tell us what you have tried,what apps you have that may possibly be blocking the ability to change your homepage.

We really need more info......

Programs like Spybot/Spywareblaster all have the ability to lock your homepage.

I would suggest you try something like Winpatrol that is easy to use and keeps you alert to any changes in your homepage and here

I like to use google. However when I go into explorer the MSN homme page comes up. I then go to www. and bring up their home page and click on the 'Make google my home page' but when come out and go back to explorer the MSN comes back. I have tried going into Tools-Options and followed the instructions but they don't seem to apply. Still trying. Thanks

I take you have tried via the tools menu in Internet explorer...
Tools/internet options/general....type google as your homepage and ok.

  Manteno 20:55 12 Feb 2007

Yes. I tried all the tools-options-use current. Changed settings etc and Msn still comes back. I can add an extra tab for Google which goes alongside MSN. Then if I click Google it works but does not stay as homepage. Cheers.
