has taken over as home page.

Was using IE6 moved on to IE7 (same problem). Despite making the default homepage each time I return to the homepage it has changed back to again.
Any advice on how to cure this so I have the choice of homepage!

Is any of your security software blocking the change?
Some antivirus/antispyware programs lock the IE home and search pages and you need to alter the homepage within the security program.

I have also heard of 'nasties' causing this, have you done a full scan?

This is what you do in Firefox, but IE is much the same for this purpose.

When your on the 'net and with the browser on screen you will, of course, have the homepage that you don't want - enter the address of the home page that you do want and when that is on screen and it is the page you wisdh to make your homepage then - click on TOOLS,(that is on the top horizontal menu) - click on OPTIONS, click on the USE CURRENT PAGE button. Then back out and that should do the trick.
